Ludogorets officially presented its latest new addition - Rai Nasimiento. He came as a free agent and his last team is Bahia. The same club bought Cicinho and Cauly from Razgrad. These were the first words of the 24-year-old winger as a Ludogorets player:

"I want to thank the president and all the directors for their trust. From the first moment we were welcomed very well. I have the honor of playing in one of the biggest clubs in Europe. Since being in the elite, this team has won 11 titles in a row. I hope I want to make the fans happy and write history with the Ludogorets team. The chance to play in the Champions League would be a good continuation of my career," he began.

"I want to tell you a story. I am a believer. Three months ago my mother went to church and talked to a priest. He told her that I will sign with a big club. I didn't name it. But here it is now a fact and the name of the team is Ludogorets. Now my faith in God is even stronger," he added. "Since we received the offer from Ludogorets, with my agents, who are like my fathers, we rejected all other offers. Bulgaria was the best option for me, I'm taking a big step. I've been without a club for 3 months, but that doesn't mean I haven't trained, I didn't eat right, I didn't follow a regime. I talked to Ludogorets coaches and they told me what I should do. I will give my best to grow in this club. I know the history of Ludogorets. Since the team in the first division, is the champion. Also, since I have already signed with Ludogorets, I will analyze all the opponents we will play with. I have enough time to get familiar with Bulgarian football," said Rai.

"Since I was 12 years old I have lived and played in the cold. In Zaragoza, where I started my career, it is very cold in the winter. Yes, it is not like here, but I will adapt. I spoke to Cicinho, who is now in Bahia. I asked him about how he acclimatized in Bulgaria and how long it took him. He told me that the club is very good, everyone has accepted him very well. Not only in Ludogorets, but also in the country as a whole. I have also spoken to Ronaldo from Levski, with whom we played together. He said that in his club it is okay. But now that we are both in Bulgaria, we will meet again and talk. There is no connection between me and the Brazilian legend Rai. It is just a coincidence. Otherwise my father's name is Rivelinho," the winger finished.
