BEIJING, July 16 (Xinhua) -- Brazilian Leonardo Pereira has joined Chinese Super League (CSL) side Shandong Luneng, the club announced on Wednesday.
Pereira was a free agent as his former club Tianjin Tianhai withdrew from the CSL due to financial difficulties ahead of the new season. The 34-year-old will wear the No. 20 jersey next season.
The new season of the CSL, which had been scheduled to kick off on February 22, was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak and will begin on July 25. ■
