alves aHeerenveen had agreed to allow the free agent the chance to train with their reserve side with the view that a permanent deal could be offered if the Brazilian striker impressed.

However the 32 year old is yet to turn up at the club after having doubts over the deal, and coach Marco van Basten has slammed the forwards attitude.

Van Basten said on Alves’s doubts, “Then pack your bags and get out. You come here to play football. Then you grab your football and your bag and go onto the pitch. I have not seen him. Very curious.”

Alves played for Heerenveen between 2006-08 netting an excellent 45 goals in 39 league games before joining English side Middlesbrough for a fee of around €20 million.

However since then Alves has been unable to replicate his outstanding scoring record that he had in Netherlands, and left Middlesbrough a major flop, and has since represented a number of clubs in the middle-east.

His last club was Al Gharafa, where he signed a one year deal, but only made three appearances.
