Sylvinho Ends Up On The Scrap Heap

Sylvio Mendes Campos Júnior aka Sylvinho has sadly ended up on the scrap heap following his release from Manchester City FC.

Following an illustrious career at Corinthians, Arsenal, Celta Vigo and Barcelona the 36-year-old left-back finally said goodbye to the highlife and now ends up with hundreds of fellow-pro's on the end of season scrap heap.

The Săo Paulo born former Brazilian international was originally touted as staying with the well fancied 2011/12 Champions League qualifiers, Manchester City in some sort of coaching role, however, the opportunity has passed the 5feet 8inch tall talisman and now all that's left for the so-called good looking Brazilian is a return to his native land.

We Blues thank you for your season 2009/10 ten first-team efforts.

Sky Sports News reports the signing of veteran Brazilian defender Sylvinho on a one-year deal.

Great athlete and professional sportsman. Certainly still has a lot to offer.

Like you say Eighthsin, this bloke as an awful lot to give. Perhaps a Championship side might come along and snap him up on a free? It must be worth a punt, surely.

Looks as we now have Daily Mail reporters on Vital .... Sorry Tudor but he hasn't ended up on any scrapheap he has got to the age of 35 which for the vast majority of footballers, at the top level, means one thing ... an honourable retirement with a well earned pot of money and much more than the average working person for whom redundancy might well mean the scrapheap. I would suggest you leave the emotive stuff to the Daily Mail hacks.

He could still get a club lower down and be an assett, fit as a butchers dog and his enthusiasm was a delight to see.

Hope the guy finds someplace - he could give Blackpool a couple of good seasons
