Rubenilson dos Santos da Rocha, better known as Kanu, is making his way to Thailand to play for the country’s top football club, Buriram FC. Kanu used to play for a Russian FC, among others, but has now decided to come to the land of smiles to bask in the tropical weather and see what he can contribute to the Thai football league.

The 24 year old midfielder from Brazil has been around. Before starting up with Anderlecht, he was with FC Groningen as well as Cercle Brugge. He played for Terek Grozny in the Russian Premier League but nothing amazing happened there.

Hopefully he’ll be able to wow fans of Buriram with his skills. Considering the ability level of other players in the league, it shouldn’t be too hard for him to really stand out.
