Chaguinha will not be part of the 2020/21 futsal squad of Sport Lisboa e Benfica. In six seasons with an eagle on his chest, the Brazilian wing helped the club win every domestic trophy: 2 National Championships, 2 Portuguese Cups, 2 Super Cups and 3 League Cups.
Arrival in 2014
"I was very well received. I've always heard of Benfica's greatness, but I've been able to prove that it's much greater than I imagined. Few clubs in the world that have the structure you see at Benfica and the care they have with athletes."
For the history of the sport
"Benfica is a club that has always played to win everything. I'm sorry for the losses I had at club, but I'm very proud and honored by the titles I've won with this jersey. I'll never forget the fans and the family I built up within the Club."
Message to the supporters
"I want to thank you for all the support I've had in these six seasons, in all the good times and the bad. I would like to say that we love to see the pavilions full of fans. You will always be our 'our extra player'! Never stop supporting us. And finally, a big thank you!"
