“I’ve always wanted to play in Asia,” said Thomas. “It will take some time to get used to, but I think it’s really great. It feels good to have Korean players cheering me on and off the pitch. A more intense and faster play style that the coach wants.” I think it’s up to me whether I can adapt to the season. It will definitely be a successful season.”
After showing confidence in adapting to Korean football, he said, “I’m always ready to learn and respect, so I’m not afraid of anything.”
In addition to Chapecoense, Thomas has played for famous Brazilian clubs such as Sport and Flamengo, and is a veteran who has played for Italian and Greek clubs such as Londrina, Apollon Smirnis and Atromitos. Attention is focusing on whether Gwangju, which came to the top of the K-League 2 with overwhelming momentum last year, will be able to produce good results in the K-League 1 with Thomas’ skills at the forefront.
