This has made us very happy.
Just to see that Eduardo Da Silva is still playing football at the age of 34 fills us with nostalgia of Arsenal when they were good and that maverick Croatia side.
So we’re overjoyed to hear that Silva has signed with a new club and will continue to play football into the twilight of his career.
Legia Warsaw announced on their website that the former Arsenal, Dinamo Zagreb and Shakhtar Donetsk front man would sign for the Polish side, subject to a medical.
That could be the only hitch because we all surely remember that fateful day a decade ago at Birmingham when poor Eduardo suffered one of the worst broken legs ever witnessed.
He hasn’t been the same player ever since.
It was 10 years ago now that Silva’s leg was basically split in two and we really hope he will be able to add his experience to a young Warsaw squad.
Born in Brazil, Silva adopted Croatian nationality in 2002 and was handed a debut for the national side against Republic of Ireland in 2004.
Slaven Bilic utilised him during the Euros 2012 and he went to the 2014 World Cup.
He started his career at Zagreb before the tainted move to Arsenal, since then he has spent time either in Ukraine or Brazil.

He won the Ukrainian league fives times with Shakhtar and completd spells at Flamengo and Atletico Paranaense.
Now he’s back in Eastern Europe and we think he still has a lot to teach any young strikers coming through.
He’s level with Mario Mandzukic as Croatia’s second-top scorer.
Maybe it’s a late push for a World Cup spot?
