Here in Brazil, once a player arrives and marketing starts developing a project, you will need 120 days. In the case of an epidemic problem, it can take more than six months. When you start, you run the risk of the guy changing clubs.”
Hulk’s choice as an idol

It’s the least I can do for everything I’ve ever received in my life.”
