Francisco Trincao was signed by FC Barcelona in February but will join up with his new club after a short holiday. The midfielder has played out the season with Sporting Braga which ended with a victory over champions FC Porto. The new Barcelona signing can’t wait to meet his new teammates but is also sad to leave Braga.
“Maybe on vacation, or when I get to Barcelona, I will realise that things are going to change. It will cost me a little, but football is like that,” he said. “In recent days I have felt nostalgic. I thought about everything I went through in this club, all the fields where I played in moments when there was not even a Sports City. I was almost crying, this was my home during my adolescence and I will miss it.”
“I knew this goodbye was difficult, after a series of games in which we did not get the results we wanted. It ended up going well for us.” He added: “Thanks for all the love in the stadium and in the city. They always supported me, even when I played less. I have always been very well received on the street. Braga will always be my home.”
