Attacking midfielder, aged 16, is on the 2019 Dragons.
Manuel Miranda signed a professional contract with FC Porto, the blue and white club revealed this Thursday. The 16-year-old attacking midfielder plays for the Dragons’ under-17s.
He arrived at FC Porto in 2019, from Taboeira.
“It’s a very special day. This commitment means that FC Porto is betting on me. This is the result of my work, but also the support of my parents, my friends and my coaches. It’s a sign that I’m working well and I will continue to do so. I hope to do my best, as I have always done. I want to continue playing, working and being champions with the under-17s, which is the most important thing. I want to reach the first team as soon as possible, but always with a lot of work to improve the less good things and work on what I already do well”, he said, in statements to the club’s official media.
“I’m an attacking midfielder, I like dribbling and scoring goals and helping to defend when necessary. My reference is Deco. He really liked dribbling, scoring goals and making assists. That’s what characterizes me too”, he explained. .
