Chapecoense have said they are not looking to sign established names like Ronaldinho, as the club begins rebuilding following the air disaster that killed 19 of its players.


Football legends from all over the world including two-time FIFA World Player of the Year, Ronaldinho, Argentina’s Juan Roman Riquelme and former Chelsea striker, Eidur Gudejohnsen, have all offered to play for the Brazilian team.

Although Chapecoense president, Ivan Tozzo, says he appreciates their gestures, he revealed that they plan to find young players.

“We are ruling out bringing established or famous players because we never had footballers who fit that profile within our institution,” he told Marca.

“Also, everyone knows we are of modest means and we don’t have the resources to pay large fortunes like other big clubs can.

“We will probably go after young professionals in the second division or those who were not chosen by first division clubs.”
