The star of the Sharjah team, Brazilian Caio Lucas, shined this season, despite his team's failure to compete for the ADNOC Professional League title, and its early exit from the first round of the Asian Champions League.

Caio is considered the most prominent trump card in the hands of the team's coach, Romanian Olario Cosmin, as evidenced by the player's numbers this season, in which he led the "King" to the President's Cup final, as well as to second place in the ADNOC Professional League, before a round of the season's conclusion.

Caio's last goal was his goal against the Emirates team in the 25th round the day before yesterday, where Sharjah won 2-1, and before that a double in a 4-0 victory over Baniyas in round 24.

The numbers confirm Caio's scoring strength this season, as he scored 13 goals out of 45 for Sharjah in the league, making him fourth in the top scorers, including two goals from the penalty spot.

The "King" fans describe Caio, who came to the Sharjah team in January 2020, coming from the Portuguese club Benfica, as the icon of the team and the maker of its joys in the recent period, as he always appears in the difficult times when the team needs him.

Although the player's contract will expire in the 2024 season, he is expected to be extended by the club's management to continue with the team in appreciation of the advanced technical level that he has been providing so far.
