Rodrigo Possebon has left Manchester United and joined Brazilian side Santos on a four year deal, after the 21-year-old midfielder failed to make it into Sir Alex Ferguson’s first team plans. The youngster’s return to his homeland comes two and a half years after joining United from Internacional. He returns home for no transfer fee.
The talented player put in a series of outstanding performances for United’s reserve team before suffering an ankle injury on a rare first team opportunity, against Middlesbrough in the Carling Cup.
Although sidelined for barely a month, the midfielder failed to gain any regular first team action – making a single FA Cup appearance against Derby County in February 2009 – and was loaned to Braga for 2009/10 campaign. He failed to make an appearance for the Portuguese club.
“It was a great experience in Europe, but now I want to adapt again as quickly as possible,” said the player who has declared for Italy, but is still eligible to play for Brazil.

Poor lad lost his bottle for a year after that tackle. Sad thing is that he was starting to show signs of being over it this summer. Still don’t think he’d have ever made it into the first team.
Oh, forgot to add, it’s all part of a plan by those evil Glazers and proves we have no transfer funds.
Isn’t that what you are supposed to say in every post on here?
I think, to paraphrase you, my answer to that is “yawn”
Ah, same response as mine to all the Glazer out rubbish posted here. Good.
possebon was a great young player and if not for his injury and disasterous loan to braga i believe he would of made a manutd career for himself, things just didnt go as planned and he optèd to return home to brasil. santos has got a good young player and has defended football by signing neymar to a new deal preventing chelsea attempts of poaching him and plans to ruin citys attempts to poach by giving ganso a new deal, aldo ganso doesnt want to join the small club bitters anyway. good luck possebon.
He was calm, composed but a bit slow
Good description of Stephen Hawking there sheesh
