“With his class, and his experience in both central defence and defensive midfield, Chris offers us different options. Our task now is to introduce him into the squad as soon as possible,” said the club manager Markus Babbel.
Born and raised in Brazil, Chris first came to Germany in 2003 and played for FC St. Pauli in the 2. Bundesliga. One year later he transferred to Eintracht Frankfurt where he stayed until his 2011 move to Wolfsburg. In total, Chris has 133 Bundesliga appearances with ten goals. He's also played in 12 DFB Cup matches, having scored twice.
