Piazon was loaned out to Reading, Fulham and seven other clubs before joining Portuguese side Braga last year.
The 28-year-old Brazilian is currently on loan to home-country club Botafogo.
Piazon starred in the Rio outfit’s 3-2 comeback win at Internacional on Sunday.
But he became one of four players red-carded after triggering an on-pitch brawl in added time, during which he suffered a dislocated shoulder, in footage shown by A BOLA.

“Thanks for your messages of support and concern. My shoulder has now been put back into place.
“I’ll have it cared for and treated so I am ready for the next game.
“We still have many battles ahead of us, and we will always win them together as a team.”
