Brazilian star snubs Arsenal and Chelsea interest for Serie A return
Wouldn’t you much rather cheer for a guy named Dagoberto than Smith? There was even once a Brazilian player named Creedence Clearwater Cauto. And some countries have it even better with names such as Peter Pander, Danny Shittu, and Danny Invincible.
