Ferreira, who was deemed surplus to requirements at Sundowns, says he is familiar with his new club. "I am proud to come to Colombian football and more to America. I know the history of America, saw the game when [they] faced Brazilian teams in Copa Libertadores,” he tells the club's website. Rather interesting is the fact that America di Cali don't seem to know their new acquisition well. "The contract is until December 2012 with an option to purchase. [Ferreira] scored 19 goals for his team Mamelodi Sundowns in Africa," Di Cali claim. In fact, the Brazilian scored a single goal in 10 appearances for Sundowns over two seasons.
