Chapecoense to sign on 20 new players

Chapecoense will sign up to 20 new players for their upcoming new season after the Brazilian football club devastated by an airline crash.

The club would also preserve the jerseys of surviving players of the club. Nineteen players and coaching staff were killed in November last year when their plane crashed in Colombia whilst en route to the final of the Copa Sudamericana.

Chapecoense was awarded the trophy, while their Colombian opponents Atletico Nacional were accorded a fair play award.

“We are resorting to a lot of loans,” said director of football Rui Costa. “That is a tool for bringing together quality, speed and budget. Many clubs are being partners in this.”

“We looked at 90 players, we whittled that down to 50 and finally had a list of 38 players that got down to the number of players we have today.

Costa also added that defenders Neto and Alan Ruschel – two survivors of the air disaster – are “expected” to return to the club and put on their jersey once more. Reserve goalkeeper Jackson Follmann also lived but had to have part of his leg amputated.

“No player this season will use the shirts that were worn by Jackson Follmann, Neto or Alan Ruschel,” Costa said.

“More than a tribute, we expect Alan and Neto to come back and wear them. Follmann sadly won’t be able to but he will certainly be back here with us in some capacity.”

Chapecoense, who will begin pre-season training on Friday, start the domestic season on 26 January with a home game against Joinville. They have also rejected proposals that would have granted them immunity from relegation for three years.
