São Paulo supporters have a new hero as Calleri nets three in two matches (VIDEO)


Jonathan Calleri’s transfer away from Boca Juniors may have left a sour taste in the mouth but São Paulo supporters don’t appear to mind after the 22-year-old striker continued his impressive start to life in Brazil.

After a move to Europe failed to materialise and instead an investment group signed Jonathan Calleri from Boca Juniors, the former All Boys striker ended up on loan at São Paulo. After making his debut on Wednesday as a second half substitute against Peruvian side, Universidad César Vallejo Club de Fútbol, Calleri netted an important equaliser within nine minutes. A valuable away draw certainly makes São Paulo favourites for qualification to the Copa Libertadores group stage.

On Saturday, Calleri made his first start and with two headers either side of half time, put São Paulo on course for a simple 4-0 win against Agua Santa in the Campeonato Paulista.

As Boca Juniors began their campaign with a goalless draw, São Paulo supporters certainly seem happy with their new acquisition.
