“I am happy to play for such a great club,” Taison told his new club’s official website. “I played a lot against Shakhtar and I have a lot of information about them. I know Shakhtar’s Brazilians. I really want to help the club win new titles.
“I’ll train and work, respecting everyone who plays for the club. In the first place I have respect for all. Of course, I will try to play as best I can.”
