It seemed like a match made in heaven when Brazilian defender Eduardo Ferreira joined Mamelodi Sundowns a few seasons ago.
However, Ferreira failed to live up to expectations and parted from the Brazilians after only making 19 appearances in three years.
Ferreira left Mzansi and returned in 2014 for a stint at Mpumalanga Black Aces.

The journeyman was soon on his merry way again and has since had spells in Brazil, Iran and India.
Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, Ferreira featured for Neroca FC in the Indian second division.
Soccer Laduma reported that the 36-year-old was disappointed with the setup in India and departed for his homeland just ahead of the pandemic.

Ferreira said, “I am okay and with my family here in Brazil. I am looking for a new team to join after this Coronavirus. After leaving my previous club I went to another one there in India but I didn’t like how they do things.”
Briefly.co.za learnt that the centre-back is currently looking for a new club and is open to playing in Mzansi once again if an offer is made.
Speaking of Sundowns, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has signed a four-year extension with the club.
