At the age of 38 and with nine clubs under his belt, not to mention countless domestic and international honours, you wouldn’t blame Diego Forlan for calling it a day and slinking off into the sunset.
The Uruguayan striker has been without a club since leaving Indian Super League side Mumbai City in 2016.
However his remarkable career is set to continue after he announced a move to Hong Kong Premier League side Kitchee.
Forlan will arrive in the country on 10 January and will help the club compete in the AFC Champions Cup.
Kitchee, who are the Hong Kong Premier League holders, have never gone beyond the semi-final of the AFC Champions Cup.
Last year they didn’t get beyond the play-off round after falling to South Korean side Ulsan Hyundai.
Forlan won’t be the only South American representing Kitchee this season.
Brazilian Fernando won Hong Kong’s Player of the Year in 2017 and has been at the club since 205 while compatriot Lucas Silva has recently arrived at the club.
There’s also a German, Australian, Canadian, Hungarian, Israeli, Philippine and two South Korean’s among Kitchee’s squad.
Football truly is a global game.
