I had the opportunity to reach Palmeiras, where I established my base. Reaching Botafogo as the most expensive signature in history is a cause for joy and contentment. I know how hard it is to work for this. I’m really happy. I hope to return the favor in the best possible way, with victories, goals and assists. I’m so happy, it’s time to rest now because Sunday has more – said Patrick DePaula.

I was very emotional because I know how much I fight, work and dedicate myself to training. It was a comforting goal, that opened the scoring in Botafogo’s win – and concluded.
