The Guangzhou Derby has been always a big event for the province’s capital. On the evening of August 5th, however, Alan Garvaloh, a Brazilian striker playing for Guangzhou Evergrande FC, sat quietly in the auditorium of the Yuexiushan Stadium, Guangzhou R&F’s home ground.
As a matter of fact, whether Alan is on the field or not, his contribution to the team is undeniable. Alan has played nearly one hundred competitions and won eight championships for Guangzhou Evergrande since January of 2015. Also he was named the Chinese FA Super Cup’s most valuable player twice.
It is in this beautiful southern city of Guangzhou that Alan and his family welcomed a second baby. “I feel at home in Guangdong,” the Brazilian forward frankly admitted.
