FC Dinamo Tbilisi have signed Brazilian midfield player Carlos Alberto Da Rocha.

FC Dinamo Tbilisi have signed Brazilian midfield player Carlos Alberto da Rocha on a three-year contract. The 28-year-old, who joins from Brazilian side Sport Club Corinthians Alagoano, is the first signing made by Dinamo's Croatian coach Ivo Susak.

Career in Russia
"I like everything at the club," Carlos said after signing. "I think Dinamo are a strong club, where I will do my best." Aside from a number of Brazilian clubs, Carlos has also played for FC Torpedo Moscow and FC Arsenal Tula in Russia.

Three of a kind
Carlos is only the third player from outside the former Soviet Union to play in the Georgian Premier League. The first two were Nigerian Uchechukwu Uwakwe and Belgian Denit D'Hondt.
