Eduardo Alves da Silva’s injury he picked up when playing in Arsenal back in February of 2008 left him out of the pitch for 1 year. Arsenal faced off against Birmingham and a late tackle from Martin Taylor ended his season.
The Brazilian made his return to the main team of Arsenal during a match against Cardiff City in the FA Cup and managing to score a penalty kick in the 2nd half but moments later he suffered from yet another injury, this time with a hamstring injury. He was eventually offloaded to the Ukranian side Shakhtar Donetsk.
Now at his 30 years of age, it would be difficult for him to play at a top tier club and league but the Brazilian forward stated that he would love to make a return to the Premier League and play once more in England.
“I still love the Premier League. I keep in touch with Tomas Rosicky and Bacary Sagna at Arsenal and keep an eye on what is generally happening in England. I expect to play for Croatia in Brazil and if I have a good World Cup, who knows what that could lead to?” he told the Daily Star.
Eduardo made over 40 appearances with Arsenal as he played for 3 years in the club and his time had to be cut short ever since he took the huge tackle from Martin Taylor that ultimately marked the end of his career in the Premier League.
He spoke about the fantastic form that his former club Arsenal is going through as they are making a charge at the Premier League title going against the very best in England.
“Arsenal has the right mentality and I’m not surprised they have made such a good start to the season and are top of the Premier League. Don’t forget, their great run of form actually started in the second-half of last season when they went on a run, picked up a lot of points and qualified for the Champions League. The former Arsenal player said.
