Mari joins the Zebrette on-loan to the end of the season.
He said at his presentation this morning: ""First of all, I thank the whole club for giving me this opportunity, it will be a pleasure to work for Udinese. For me, Serie A is one of the top leagues in the world, I hope to have a great impact, it is an important moment for my career, I also had no doubts in accepting the proposal.
"When I went to Flamengo everyone told me that it was not one of the best career options, but when in life they tell you not to do it for me the challenge becomes more fascinating, it was a great challenge.
"I have had many experiences so this will certainly allow me to help my teammates on and off the pitch, I like to talk on the pitch and guide my teammates. In the locker room it is important to keep everyone on track and in good spirits, because in football in negative moments it is important to keep morale."
