Gilberto Arrives in Athens

Gilberto arrived in Athens this evening to a hero’s welcome with over 1500 Panathinaiko fans cheering on the Brazil international.  Gilberto will become the highest paid player in Greece when he signs for Panathinaikos tomorrow and is officially unveiled as a PAO player.

Gilberto leaves Arsenal after a successful career having joined the Gunners in 2002, making 170 appearances and scoring 17 goals.

He rejected a move to Everton, stating that he wanted to Panathinaikos as they were competing in the Champions League.
