Brazilian 'Seal dribbler' to Middlesbrough?

Now that Mark Viduka has decided to leave Boro for Newcastle United, manager Gareth Southgate needs to rebuild his side up front. One possible name that has been touted is the player known as the 'seal dribbler'.

Brazilian teenager Kerlon of Cruzeiro is known for his ability to flick the ball up onto his head and run with it during matches. It is known as the seal dribble, and is virtually impossible for a defending team to challenge legally.

The move starts with a flick of the ball from the pitch onto his head, Kerlon then proceeds to run past opponents while bouncing the ball on top of his forehead like a seal at the circus. The speed at which he travels when doing this, coupled with his ability to change direction as he runs with the ball above his head, often makes opponents resort to simply pushing him over and fouling him. He is said to have learned the move from his father.



While the seal dribble is his trademark, he is by no means a one trick pony as the above video shows. He’s already established himself at all the different Brazilian youth levels for his age and can play as a striker but also as an attacking midfielder. He’s an excellent dribbler with his feet as well as his head and is a solid free kick taker.

Middlesborough seems quite an appropriate destination for someone famed for dribbling... - MattyDread

He'll get his leg broken when he tries that a few times, but he won't manage it anyway because the refs are more lenient, they allow a bit pushing and shoving. And he'll be on the floor trying to find oxygen to breathe rather than smog. He should got to the mackems, then we can try to aim at the ball when we're bouncing stuff of his head
