Quang Nam FC sign Brazilian defender

V.League 1 side Quang Nam have signed Brazilian defender Lucas Dos Santos Rocha to prepare for the second half of the season.

According to coach Vu Hong Viet, Rocha is speedy, strong and good in the air.

The 1.99m tall player was on the books of Bayer Leverkusen of Germany from 2010-12 but didn’t make an appearance in the Bundesliga.

Besides Rocha, Quang Nam also added two domestic players including midfielders Nguyen Nhu Tuan and Nguyen Hong Son from Hanoi.

 

Quang Nam, who are nearly at the bottom of the rankings, are reportedly seeking more foreign players in an effort to avoid relegation.
