Fabinho is a Canary!
It's finally official, Fábio Pereira Baptista has signed his contract at STVV.
The 21-year-old Portuguese right-back comes over from Benfica on a free transfer.
After spending his youth at Sintrense (no, this is not the Portuguese version of Sintruin), Fabio, nicknamed Fabinho, ended up at Portuguese giant SL Benfica. In the capital, he played with the U23 and the B team. Last year he played 22 games for the second team, in which he scored 1 goal.
Quote Andre Pinto, sporting director:
"We are happy that Fabinho has agreed to come and play with us. He is a promising young right-back and comes from one of the best youth academies in Europe. We will help him integrate and develop his soccer".
Bem-vindo ao Sint-Truiden, Fabinho
