Rodriguez unveiled as JDT's new No. 11
More commonly known as Patito Rodriguez, the new signing was welcomed by a 500-strong crowd at the stadium after signing on the dotted line in a press conference.
He was recruited on a season-long loan from Brazilian side Santos reportedly with an option for a permanent deal.
Prior to his arrival in Malaysia, the Brazilian voiced his enthusiasm to be joining the Southern Tigers.
"I am very happy to be a new player of Johor Darul Ta'zim and I will give my best to help the team," he said.
Rodriguez was JDT's first major signing of the mid-season transfer window, and at least one more signing, who will most likely replace Luciano Figueroa, is expected to follow in the next few days.
