Professional soccer K-League 1 Ulsan Hyundai announced on the 15th that it had recruited Brazilian defensive midfielder Mateus Salles (29).
Matheus, who made his professional debut in the prestigious Brazilian Palmeiras in the 2014 season, has played a total of 188 games (3 goals and 3 assists) in the first and second divisions. In 2016, he was selected for the Brazil U23 (under 23) national team and played in two games.
Ulsan said, “Mateus has the ability to coordinate the game, which is the most important characteristic of a defensive midfielder. He further expressed his expectations by saying, “He is a style that helps the team by actively participating in any situation between attack and defense.”
He added, “Mateus will be like a catalyst for the team in Ulsan, which has a national defense line that includes Kim Young-kwon, Jeong Seung-hyun, and Seol Young-woo.”
“I know the team has been waiting for me for a long time,” Mateus said. “I want to give the team and fans the best performance,” he said.
Meanwhile, Matheus, who has completed the transfer process, is scheduled to join the Ulsan training camp in Ishigaki, Japan. 19가이드03
