JAMSHEDPUR: Alexandre Monteiro de Lima, simply known as Alex, has become the latest acquisition for Jamshedpur FC, being signed for the 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL) season.
Alex is a midfielder who comes at the back of a star-studded career across the world and becomes the club's fourth foreign player (along with Aitor Monroy, David Grande and Nerka Valskis).
The 31-year-old has the experience of playing in Asia with stints in the highly competitive K League 2 (South Korea) with Suwon FC and FC Anyang and most recently with Ho Chi Minh City FC in V.League 1 (Vietnam).
The midfielder has amassed a total of 43 goals and 23 assists in a total of 337 appearances in his career so far.
Head coach Owen Coyle said: "Alex is a player of multiple capabilities. A team-player, aggressive, smart, quick, a powerhouse - I could go on with a hundred adjectives and yet, it would not be enough to describe him. He is an amazing talent who can unlock the toughest of defences."
The Brazilian began his career in the youth system of Gremio Mauaense in Brazil. In 2008, he went on to sign as a professional player for FC Wohlen in Switzerland. He became a regular starter for the Swiss 1 Liga club where he spent four years and also enjoyed a spell on loan at FC Gossau of the same league. IANS
