Brentford sign Brazil legend Garrincha's grandson from Halmstads
Brentford have announced that the grandson of Brazil legend Garrincha has joined the club and will play for their B team.
Winger Henrik Johansson has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with the Championship club after rejecting a new deal with Halmstads.
The 18-year-old joins the Londoners for an undisclosed fee.
Johansson represents Sweden -- the country in which Garrincha won the 1958 World Cup -- and said he hoped there was a little of his grandfather's style in his own way of playing.
Speaking to the official Brentford website, he said: "I don't really talk about it that much because I don't want it to affect my football or my life, but it is always in the back of my mind so I do think about it.
"I like to think there's a little bit of him in how I play. I am an offensive player who is technical and likes to score goals."
Brentford's head of football operations, Robert Rowan, said: "He's had a good couple of years in Sweden at club and international level, which initially brought him to our attention.
"We invited him to train with us in December for a few days, and he really impressed the technical staff. Henrik is a wide attacker who is intelligent in possession, quick, direct and a good finisher."
