On loan at Sao Paulo from Arsenal, Denilson scored an absolute screamer, his first for the club, in their 3-0 win over Palmeiras at the weekend – humping the ball in off the stanchion from 40 yards out…
Denilson later thanked his mother, who passed away in 1998, for her assistance:
“She and God helped me a lot, especially with that shot. She always dreamt of me scoring for Sao Paulo. There was nothing fortunate about that shot. I knew it would go in.
“There was something in the way the ball went in. I think my mother put her hand on the ball and guided it as well.”
Handball then. Chalk if off immediately.
Anyone remember him doing anything remotely similar for Arsenal?
