Giovanni back to Greece?

According to most Greek newspapers today, Giovanni could return to the Greek league for next season. Not for Olympiakos of course but for... Ergotelis. The Cretan team has secured promotion to the first division for next season, however they are likely to loose their star striker Patrick Oguntsoto whose contract expires in June. Oguntsoto is a striker of great ability and influence and Ergotelis has build their game on him so replacing him with some random "good player" might not be enough. In his place, they have contacted Giovanni who's not having the best of times in Brazil. And he doesn't seem negative to return.

That'd be fun.

Who knows. There have been rumors for all Greek top clubs (AEK in particular) but also about clubs like Standard Liege in Belgium and AZ in Holland.

He's very, very good. I would love to have him at PAOK.

I love Giovanni.
Even as a Panathinaikos fan…
I remember in 1999 when he first came in Greece, he was OUTSTANDING, I loved to watch him play.
He wasn’t the same player after his injury, but still pure class.
Our championship needs player like him.
As for Ogunsoto ,I have a feeling that AEK will get him this summer.
It would be a good singing for Galata.

there's no way Giovanni is coming back

he can get a good contract with a top brazilian team or if he wants money he will stay in Qatar. I cant see an incentive for him to go to Ergotelis personally speaking
