888poker Signs Brazilian Football Legend

Tags: 888poker, Brazil, Denilson de Oliveira.
Posted on Wednesday, March 23, 2016 by "T".

Denilson de Oliveira has has inked an ambassador deal with 888poker. Denilson played football for a living from the age of 17 until he retired in 2010. During his 16 years as a profession footballer he played for clubs such as Sao Paulo and Real Betis. He was also on the Brazil National team from 1996 to 2003 (in 2002, he won the FIFA World Cup for his country!).

Denilson became a sports commentator on Brazilian television once he retired from football. Now, at the age of 38, he begins a new career as an 888poker brand ambassador!

"All my friends started to play poker, and so I got more and more interested in the game. Many of the qualities you need to be a successful footballer can help you improve your poker game. 888poker is one of the biggest and best poker platforms in the world, so I am very proud to become an 888poker ambassador. I hope it will help develop my own pokers skills as well as encourage new players to get involved in this exciting game," said Denilson.

Itai Pazner, Senior Vice President & Head of B2C at 888 Holdings added:

"Denilson played football with skill, enthusiasm and energy, bringing happiness to millions. We're delighted to have signed him up as an ambassador, because we want poker players to approach the game in a similar way.
"It is a game of skill, it takes practice and intelligence, but we also want our players to have fun and enjoy themselves along the way."

As far I'm concerned they could've hit up the Pope itself with a nice sponsorship deal I probably would not care more for this company anyway. Even that I'd definitely be interested in Pope Francis's poker skills 100x times rather than Denilson's...

well there you go- denilson will be playing cards instead of showing off his amazing "step over the ball gazillion times and forget what to do next" skill. what a coup for 888 poker, surely now they can rename their poker site to 069 poker to attract more "leisure orientated" customers.

So..... What a coup for 888..... Signing a realistically forgotten about retired Brazilian footballer as an ambassador. I couldn't think who he was so googled him and discovered someone else, another Brazillian footballer named denilson. I then regoogled him and found him. Good luck to him in his new role.

Yeah, well imagine the guy in the 888's marketing department who came up with the idea... They either making a market push in South America for this to be worth it, or somebody is coming from Brasil in this company - otherwise this not making much sense.
Legend? Khm. That's Pele. Maradona. Puskas. Cruyff. Etc... Even Fat Ronaldo.
Not Denilson.
