Lulinha confident ahead of new season

New Olhanense star excited to play in top flight

LulinhaRising Brazilian star Lulinha has started training with his new Olhanense team-mates after completing his loan move from Corinthians. A bright future is predicted for the skilful midfielder, who starts his second year in Portuguese football.

“I’ve got great expectations. It’s very exciting having a chance to play in the top flight after playing in the Liga de Honra (Portuguese 2nd division) last year. I believe I will be useful to Olhanense. I’m going to work hard to try and get into the starting line-up.”
Lulinha teams up again with fellow Brazilians Jardel and Ismaily, both of whom were team-mates of his at Estoril last season. And the up-and-coming talent believes the Algarve club have put together a strong squad.

“Olhanense have built a good squad, guided by a coach who is well prepared for the Liga. We’re going to work towards guaranteeing a place in the top half of the table,” added the 20-year-old.
Olhanense kick off their Liga ZON Sagres campaign with a home match against Vitoria Guimaraes on Monday.
