Santos moves on to Tochigi SC

Kyodo

Tochigi SC has signed Brazilian-born former Japan midfielder Alessandro Santos, the J. League second-division club said on Friday.

The 35-year-old two-time World Cup star was released in December by Nagoya Grampus. He has scored 67 goals in 353 career games in the Japanese top flight with Shimizu S-Pulse, Urawa Reds and Grampus.

"I want to get back to basics and give it my best shot from square one," Santos said in a statement.

Santos played for Japan at the 2002 World Cup Japan hosted with South Korea and also at the 2006 finals in Germany. He has seven goals in 82 internationals.
