Kotoko's new Brazilian signing Da Silva scores in first training session
New Brizilian striker of Asante Kotoko Da Silva

New Asante Kotoko Brazilian signing Hermes Da Silva was on target in just his first training session with the side on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old has signed a four-year deal to join the Premier League champions.

Da Silva was part of the team’s first pre-season training at Adarko Jachie on Tuesday morning.

The Brazilian who has been with his brother who is resident in Ghana for months signed the contract last month and has already hit the ground running.

The striker scored a goal in Kotoko’s first pre-season training on Tuesday and his brother who also serve as his interpreter says he hopes it is the beginning of good things to come.

“He is very happy to be in Kotoko and I think he is now happy,” Da Silva’s brother told Metro941.com.

“When he is happy he scores goals and you can see he scored one today.

“If the team helps him he can score goals and help Kotoko win not only the top four but the Premier League and the Champions League.”

    Hearts management did well not to sign him. He is not even good for colts football. Thanks for the foresight. In Neil, Torgbui and Duncan we trust.

    Malnourishment has a gr8 influence on John Ku4 so dont mind him. Whether a pornstar or nudestar, he collected GhC26,000.00 from hearts of oak. Had he not joined kotoko, would u have gotn d chance to comment on him? Be braining n shun d misogynism.

    Pls pay attention to the peopl who are saying saying the guy is a porno actor. I hear a Brazillian company has recruited and sent such people along the west africa coast. So they are all over in Nigeria, Cote d'ivoire, Togo etc. They are doing it for a multi million sex hub for the 2014 world cup.

    Hi my brothers, hope you all know what is call human dignity. Lets know that comments which have no facts to substanciate what you are saying need to be resisted. Its leads to a deformation of the person been commented on. At the moment all that we know about the player is that he is a brazelian,aand a footballer, any other issue of him we leave it as time comeby. If heart didnt see anything good of him as said, another club thinks he is good. we have freedom of speach but hey not freedom od distruction, the player has his human dignity to protect. Know that this is a public place and reads this comment. Lets be careful. Allow him to play his football. We are trying to becomeracists too if we comment as such of foriegners. Thanks Tito

    Fellow Kotoko fans & Kumasi people, please permit the likes of John Kuffour & Pop man to air their views, consoling yourselves that, this will neither affect the performance or downgrade the dignity of Da Silva. There is no proof that these two, are either Hearts of oak or Accra based people & to reply then is similar fashion would be born out of prejudice & also offensive to our Phobian & Ga friends. For now, let's wait & see what the season has to offer. Long live Kotoko Long live Hearts Long live Gh football

    ha...haa..haaaaa, this is a player duncan refused to sign after assessing him for many months and u people in kumasi are in so much love with him! he never even scored one goal at training when he was justifying himself at hearts of oak just because the defenders in hearts were too much for him and even in friendly matches with other lower division clubs..he and his had to returned the money because they realised after some months of training and playing in trial matches hearts of oak were not intestred in him because he wasn't up to the task and u are here telling us that kotoko is a big club that is why they are talking about him..in ACCRA we see and know quality that is why we will not make noise about a mediocre brazilian player who even will not be registered by a fourth division team in brazil!what happened to the brazilian players kotoko registered all the way from brazil under herbert mensah's regime?pls give us a break!he just scored in his first training session and u are making news out of it..some africans and their inferior minds,is he the only one who scored at kotoko's training on the first day of training and what about the quality Ghanaian players who are playing for kotoko and also scored?useless website.
