Former Stoke City forward Jesé Rodriguez is becoming one of those players who had a quite curious career.

Despite having fancy early years where he played for the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain, we now get to see him arriving in Brazil, where he’s just signed for Coritiba, who are on the bottom of the league table.

Globo Esporte today features a story claiming Rodriguez should make his debut for the club on Thursday. In quotes with TV Coxa, he claimed he’s already preparing the celebration of his first goal.

“I was thinking a lot these days about how I was going to celebrate my first goal. I’d love it to be at home, with the fans. But if it has to be away from home, it will be. Or I’ll provide the assist for someone else to score. The important thing is to win.”

“When the offer came I was surprised because I’d been watching some Brasileiro matches for a while. I started looking into the club, the league, and I liked what I saw about football and the fans. And, above all, the passion that Coritiba fans have is impressive.”

Rodriguez was loaned to Stoke City from Paris Saint Germain in the summer of 2017. Playing for the Potters, he had one goal and one assist in 13 appearances.

In January 2018, Stoke City sent him back to the French club. The winger then played for Real Betis, Sporting, UD Las Palmas, Ankaragucu and Sampdoria. He was a free agent this summer, and with no big offers from Europe, he decided to move to Brazil.

Coritiba had a bit of a weird mid-season market. Besides signing Rodriguez, they also brought on former Leicester City and Newcastle United striker Islam Slimani, as well as ex-Benfica midfielder Andreas Samaris, hoping that players with European experience can help them get out of the current situation.
