He is excited to wear the iconic jersey which is previously worn by great name Ali Parvin.

“No. 7 is the most important jersey in Persepolis and I want to do my best for my team but I need my teammates’ help. I am ready to win the Iranian league for the fourth time in a row, that’s why I am here,” the Brazilian added.

“I promise the Persepolis fans to score many goals, however Mr. Caderon (Persepolis coach) will decide my position,” Brandão stated.
