Wolfsburg (SID) - the former Bundesliga top scorer Grafite leaving the VfL Wolfsburg after four years and goes into the desert. The striker signed a two-year contract on Saturday as expected with Al Ahli Club in Dubai. "At the age of 32, it is time to discover something new," said the Brazilian.
After 107 games in the Bundesliga and 59 goals a little era ends in Wolfsburg. "Grafite has great merit to VfL Wolfsburg." "He will be a part of the VfL history," said coach Felix Magath. The South Americans had significant contribution to the victory of Lower Saxony, Germany with 28 goals two years ago. "He will be missed as a human being and as a player." "I regret his departure, but I can understand his desire for a new challenge and wish him all the best", so Magath.
Thus, the last part of the "magical VfL triangle" leaves the Club: Edin Dzeko is long since moved to Manchester City, landed playmaker Zvjezdan Misimovic of Istanbul with Dynamo Moscow. "I have felt more comfortable in Germany, much learned, me developed and great respect for my work experience," said Grafite.
Magath had brought, Grafite whose real name is, 2007 Edinaldo Batista Libano in his first term in Wolfsburg from the French Club of Le Mans to the VfL. "My goal of the year 2009 against Bavaria are Munich, my Champions League games that 2010 be World Cup in South Africa and much more in my heart," said Grafite to leave.
