Well it appears our appeal has fallen on deaf ears. Last month we called for Rodrigo Possebon to be given a chance before he is written off but it looks like just 1 game into the season his United career is over.
Possebon has gone back to Brazil, having signed a 4 year deal with Santos with some Brazilian outlets are saying they have only bought 35% of his rights.
Upon signing, Possebon said:
“It’s a pleasure to be at a club like Santos. It is a unique opportunity and I will work hard to give my best here. I hope to play a lot of times here.”
“It was a great experience playing in Europe and I have made progress as a player. Now, I want to adapt as quickly as possible.”
Possebon’s United career went downhill following a robust challenge from Emmanuel Pogatez in a Carling Cup tie against Middleborough in 2008. He went on loan to Sporting Braga at the start of last season but was unable to break into the team and returned to the club half way through having made just 1 appearance.
Possebon made eight apps for the first team (3 starts, 5 subs) and 29 apps (all starts) for the Reserves. He scored twice for the Reserves.
