Sporting to Brentford (loan)

Sporting B’s Betinho has joined Championship side Brentford on loan until the end of the season, both clubs have confirmed. Betinho divided his time last season between Sporting B (in the Segunda Liga) and Vitoria Setubal (in the Primeira Liga). Despite impressing in the first half of last season for Sporting B, where he scored nine goals in the first half of the season, Betinho could not replicate those numbers after January while on loan at Vitoria Setubal. During his time in Setubal, Betinho did not even manage a single goal, and was mostly used in a back-up role.

Brentford returned to the second tier of English football this season after a 21 year hiatus, and appears to be a club that is willing to experiment. It is unclear as to what role Betinho will play at the club, whether it be as a starter or as a super-sub. One hopes that Betinho will thrive in the highly-physical league due to his body-build and playing style.
