The striker moved to Sardinia on a permanent deal last summer after spending the previous season on loan with the Rossoblu but will now return to Brazil for family reasons.

"After more than two years with the Rossoblu, I leave Sardinia to return to Brazil and play in Santos," he told www.cagliaricalcio.net.

"It's a difficult decision, because I consider the Cagliari an important team with special fans. To them I extend my greetings.

"In Sardinia, I found love, respect, friendship from everyone: from the President Cellino, who always treated me with utmost respect, to team-mates, not to mention the technical staff as well."

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
