Rivaldinho, son of the great Rivaldo, has joined Boavista from Mogi Mirim.

The Brazilian legend is club president of second division Mogi Mirim, but he has agreed to let his boy move on to pastures new. They had previously played together for the club.

Rivaldinho certainly seems happy with the deal, posting a picture next to his new club's crest on Twitter.

"My new home!!!! Very happy for the opportunity to play for a great team!!!" he wrote on social media (in Portuguese).

His father also got involved on Instagram (in Portuguese), with the former Barcelona playmaker claiming his son had "made the right choice" in moving to Portugal.

Boavista released the following statement confirming the move, as per Eurosport:

"Rivaldinho is a striker who possesses good movement and he's a good finisher. Apart from his own qualities, which promise him a great future, he's also the son of Ballon d'Or winner Rivaldo, who needs no introduction."

Hopefully dad won't steal the limelight at his first press conference.
