Introducing Daniel Martins!

PortugalFutbol is pleased to announce the newest addition to our writing team, Daniel Martins! Daniel is an avid fan of the Portuguese National Team, and will greatly add to the quality of the content of the site. Here’s his introduction:


My name is Daniel Martins and I am proud to say that I am the latest addition to, a site that I’m convinced you will enjoy as thoroughly as I have been doing. So much so that I’ve accepted Sam’s invitation to be part of this amazing team which brings you the best quality regarding Portuguese football in English.

South African born, with Madeirense blood running through my veins has become quite a concoction when developing a passion for football. Strangely I’ve developed a Jose Mourinho fetish ever since his Porto days which has caused me to precede him and worship the living legend.

Why do I love Portuguese football? It is just one of those unexplained feelings, a feeling such as the one similar to “love at first sight”. Just more potent and lusty while still containing its fair share of heartbreaks, as I’m sure all Seleção and lovers can agree on.

I’m always willing to add my few cents worth and will greatly enjoy any friendly discussions relating to the beautiful game. Lastly, one of my favorite quotes relating to football:

‘Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.’ – Bill Shankly
