Boot Room: Cafu's playing ee bah gum!

Byline: Ian Carbis

FORMER Brazil defender Cafu has been lined up to play a run of matches for non-league Garforth Town next year.

West Yorkshire side Garforth have played down reports Cafu, 38, will sign for them in January, however they expect the World Cup winner to join before the end of the season.

Cafu left Italian giants AC Milan during the summer, and Garforth owner Simon Clifford, who runs the Brazilian Soccer Schools coaching organisation, has persuaded him to play in England before retiring.

Clifford said: "He's still only 38 and he was playing for AC Milan last year. He's likely to be coming in April and just playing a few games for us, and it's an absolute honour to have someone like him lining up in our shirt."

Cafu's fellow Brazilians Socrates and Careca have also appeared for the Unibond Northern League team in recent seasons.
