The Brazilian has arrived at the Engenhao on an 18-month loan deal from Rubin Kazan and is looking to get his career back on track after failing to adapt to the demands of Russian football.
While being presented to the media, Eduardo did his best to endear himself to the club's fans while revealing his aim is to win trophies with Flamengo.
"My goal is to return to the Brazil national team, however, first I want to help Flamengo win something," he told Lancenet.
"Flamengo are one of the biggest clubs in the world. The fans here are great and they were a key factor in my decision."
Eduardo endured a torrid time in Russia as he failed to get back into the team following a serious knee injury that required surgery.
"The coach at Rubin Kazan was afraid to play me after because I still felt a lot of pain. In 2012, as a result, I barely played. The year did not work out well for me."
The former 1899 Hoffenheim player will don the number 10 jersey for his new side and could make his debut in two weeks' time.
"I have recovered well from my injury, but I have to improve my physical part. Despite doing two workouts a day, it is not the same when you do it at training," he added.
“I think in two weeks I will be back to my ideal weight and I could be ready.”
