36-year-old ex-Dnepr left-back Egidio found himself a new team in the Brazilian Serie B.
The veteran signed with Tombense, who finished 14th in the league last season.
On the eve of Egidio joined his new team, and will be preparing for the start of the new championship.
Egidio’s previous team was Curitiba, with the experienced defender making 21 Serie A appearances in the 2022 season.
In Ukraine, Egidio is known for the scandalous story of his collaboration with Dnipro. The Brazilian moved to this club in January 2015, but already at the end of March, having arbitrarily left Ukraine, he signed a full-fledged labor agreement with Palmeiras.
Subsequently, Dnipro, Palmeiras and Egidio were involved in legal proceedings on this matter, which the Ukrainian side lost. The Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne took the side of the Brazilian club and the football player, believing that he had every right to terminate the contract with Dnipro unilaterally, after the Ukrainians accumulated a salary debt to him for three months.
