Former FC Basle midfielder Cabral is excited about his move to Sunderland.
Cabral has revealed he turned down the chance to play Champions League football in favour of joining Sunderland.
â€śI had a lot of offers and a lot of clubs were interested in me, including some who were in the Champions League,â€ť said Cabral, who has signed a three-year deal with the Black Cats.
â€śBut I wanted to choose a club where the coach was ambitious. I had two conversations with Di Canio and I got the sense that he wanted to achieve something here with the players he was looking to bring in.
â€śBut most of all, I chose Sunderland because of Di Canio.
â€śItâ€™s definitely been a dream of mine to play in the Premier League and now itâ€™s come true.â€ť
