Sliema Wanderers bring back Brazilian forward Gilmar

Sliema Wanderers have continued to bolster their squad after announcing the signing of Brazilian forward Gilmar for the upcoming season.

Gilmar, 30, has returned to the Blues for a second spell after joining Sliema last January but managed only to play three games after the Maltese top-flight was stopped due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We are delighted to announce that Brazilian attacking midfielder Gilmar Ribeiro will be re-joining the blues for the upcoming season,” a statement said on the Wanderers’ official Facebook page.

“The 30-year-old Brazilian had originally joined our club last January, but due to the league being cut short, only managed to make 3 appearances.

Despite this, Gilmar is still not a new face to Maltese football having already played with Naxxar Lions and also been a vital part of Hibernians FC’s season 16/17 title winning side.”

Over the years, the Brazilian has gained a reputation as one of the best offensive players to ever grace Maltese football

In fact, Gilmar enjoyed a golden spell in Maltese football which reached its peak in season 2016/2017 when he helped Hibernians to be crowned as champions.

Prior joining Sliema in January, Gilmar was released by Al Hamriyah, of the UAE.
