Marcelo joins Hannover from PSV

11 August 2013 04:45

Hannover have bolstered their defensive stocks by signing 26-year-old Brazilian centre-back Marcelo from PSV Eindhoven.

Marcelo was a product of the Santos' youth system, and spent time at Polish club Wisla Krakow before moving to PSV in 2010.

He has signed a four-year deal with the Bundesliga outfit, and head coach Mirko Slomka - who watched his side defeat northern rivals Wolfsburg 2-0 on Saturday - was delighted to secure Marcelo's services.

"Marcelo was a regular starter at PSV Eindhoven and has the qualities that you look for in a modern-day central defender: consistent tackling, physical presence and good play from the back," Slomka said.

"He also impressed during the friendly match in the HDI Arena a few weeks ago. I'm delighted he’s decided to join 96."

Hannover sporting director Dirk Dufner echoed the manager's praise.

"He brings European experience with him with appearances in the UEFA Europa League as well as in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers, and has also played in the top leagues in the Netherlands, Poland and Brazil," Dufner said.
