Fabio: Lyon Home Away From Home

Fresh Lyon catch Fabio Santos claims it was the team’s large Brazilian contingent that compelled him to make the move from Cruzeiro.

The French kings already employ Claudio Caçapa, Cris, Fred and Juninho – the middle pair being former Cruzeiro players.

“It was really important for me that there is a mini colony of Brazilians at Lyon,” said Fabio Santos.

“It’s been a long time dream to play in Europe and I hope to conquer many trophies with Lyon.”
