Tiago (30, Brazil), who played an active part in Gyeongnam FC (K League 2) last season, transferred to K League 1 Daejeon Hana Citizen ahead of the 2023 season. Daejeon has significantly strengthened its offensive line after recruiting K-League 2 top scorer (19 goals) Yoo Kang-hyeon (27) from Asan, Chungcheongnam-do on the 1st.
Daejeon announced on the 11th, “With Thiago’s recruitment, we have both the first and second scoring points that bombed the K-League 2 last year.” “Thiago, who joined Gyeongnam in 2022, is a tall striker of 190 cm, and boasts excellent header and goal-making ability using his tall height,” he explained.
Thiago played 37 games last season and finished second in the K-League 2 with 19 goals and 3 assists. After the season, he was selected as the best 11 in the K League 2 striker category at the Hana One Q K League 2022 award ceremony.
Thiago said, “Daejeon is facing a new challenge in the K-League 1. I will also take on the position of a challenger.” “I am very excited to face a new challenge in a new team,” he said, adding, “I will do my best to help the team.” 메이저놀이터
