HA NOI (VNS)— V-League side Hoang Anh Gia Lai (HAGL) is testing Julio Moraes Ribeiro of Brazil in preparation for the V-League next year.
Ribeiro, 27, started training on Wednesday. He quickly fell in line with his teammates, competed sportingly with striker Cong Phuong and scored eight goals.
However, French coach Guillaume Graechen hasn't said anything about the Brazilian footballer.
Ribeiro had a chance to showcase his skills to HAGL's training board on Sunday, when he played in a friendly event in which four teams, namely HAGL, Sanna Khanh Hoa BVN and Phu Yen, besides XSKT Can Tho, are participating.
Two weeks ago, Cameroon's Dimytri Obama also had a trial with HAGL, but couldn't sign a contract with the team. — VNS
