Paulinho all smiles on Twitter, says he is 'very happy' in China


The Tottenham flop is getting accustomed to life in Asia.

Recently departed Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho has taken to Twitter to declare he is 'very happy' in China after his move to Guangzhou Evergrande.

Indeed, the 26-year-old ended a disappointing spell in north London by moving to Luiz Felipe Scolari's side this summer, with Tottenham recouping £9.9 million for the midfielder, according to the Guardian.

Paulinho received plenty of criticism for his choice of career move, with the Chinese league considered inferior to Europe's biggest divisions. The Brazilian, however, was all smiles on Twitter as he said hello to supporters in Asia.

Can Paulinho revive his career and finally enjoy some success again? The 26-year-old is on a good salary, working with a manager who supports him and should be guaranteed far more playing time than at Spurs. He certainly has everything to be happy about as he embarks upon the next step of his playing career.

Will Paulinho keep smiling, though, or will things turn sour for him in China? Scolari will no doubt hope not for his own sake as much as that of the former Tottenham midfielder.
