Coelho back in hutch

February 20, 2008 at 20:09 Leave a comment


Dyego Rocha Coelho has rejoined Atlético Mineiro from Corinthians. Coelho (which means rabbit in Portuguese) has signed a one-year loan contract at the Belo Horizonte side. However, Corinthians will be allowed to sell him if an offer comes in from a foreign club (like Celtic – see the link below). The right back spent 13 years at Corinthians but said that Atlético is his real home. Coelho played 48 games for Atlético last season scoring six times. He returned to Corinthians earlier this year but many fans still hold him responsible for the club’s exit from the Libertadores at home to River Plate in 2006.  Also see Coelho linked with Celtic
