Brazilian football club Gremio signed right back Rafinha on free transfer late Sunday.

In a statement, Gremio said the Porto Alegre club reinforced its defense with the 35-year-old for the 2021 football season.

Rafinha left Olympiacos in February to be a free agent. His deal with Gremio will end in December.

He has played for Germany’s Schalke and Bayern Munich, Brazilian clubs Coritiba and Flamengo, and Italy’s Genoa.

Rafinha joined Olympiacos from Flamengo last August, but terminated his contract with the Greek club last month.

He was a longtime Bayern Munich defender, who helped this club win seven German Bundesliga titles and a UEFA Champions League title in 2013.

In 2019, Rafinha played his part in Flamengo winning the Brazilian championship, and the Copa Libertadores, South America’s top-tier club title.
