Ex-Shanghai Shenhua striker Riascos rejoins Vasco da Gama

Xinhua,January 13, 2018 Adjust font size:

RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan. 12 (Xinhua) -- Former Shanghai Shenhua striker Duvier Riascos has rejoined his former team Vasco da Gama on a free transfer, the Brazilian club said on Friday.

The 31-year-old Colombian will be tied to Vasco for the next three seasons and will reportedly earn 60,000 US dollars a month.

"I want to send a big hug to all of Vasco's fans and thanks them for the confidence that they have shown in me and the messages that they always send me on social media," Riascos said in a statement on Vasco's official website.

Riascos parted ways with Colombia's Millonarios in December after just one season in which he scored 10 times in 37 appearances.

In his first spell at Vasco, from 2015 to 2016, he netted 17 goals in 49 matches.

He represented China's Shanghai Shenhua in 2010 and 2011, scoring 25 goals in 44 appearances across all competitions. Enditem
