Yes, we own his pass. He was bought a couple of years ago. Was a young promising player for Brazil U20 and Santos (?)

He's a center back, very tall, thin and quick.

Played 2 seasons for Benfica where Koeman met him.

Due to an ocasional lack of RB's there (Benfica) Koeman had him playing in that spot where he managed to perform very decently, but was never an automatic choice as CB. (3rd choice behind Luis?o and Ricardo Rocha)

Koeman then - after leaving Benfica - took him along to PSV.

I don't think he'll be coming to Chelsea. More probably he'll be sold to PSV or another club.

He's only decent.

Alcides was kidnapped in Brazil, but was released after he convinced his kidnappers he was not a football player.

wow.

Never heard of him, signed in 2005. He's only 22 and a defender.

How did he convince the kidnappers?

They gave him a ball and said "show us some tricks".

He tried but failed after numerous tries.

He said "I am a footballer, really".

Kidnappers didn't believe him and released him. I feel sorry for the lad.
