Former Chelsea & Barcelona Star Eider Gudjohnsen Offers to Play For Chapecoense

Former Chelsea & Barcelona Star Eider Gudjohnsen Offers to Play For Chapecoense

Former Chelsea and Barcelona striker Eider Gudjohnsen is the latest player to state that he would sign for tragic Chapecoense.

The Icelandic star has played for over 15 clubs throughout his career, including five in England, and was most recently on the books of Indian side Pune City.

However, his next move could be the greatest yet of his career after he took to Twitter to state that he would play for Chapecoense – the Brazilian side who lost 19 players in last week’s devastating plane crash.

The team were on their way to Medellin in Colombia to face Atletico National in the first leg of the Copa Scudamericana final when the plane crashed late on Monday night, killing 71 people including the full coaching staff.

Brazilian clubs have already offered to loan players to Chapecoense on a free while national hero Ronaldinho and Argentina legend Juan Roman Riquelme have expressed their desire to help the side.

Now it appears the Barcelona legend could be joined by former team mate Gudjohnsen after he published the following Tweet last night.
