Portsmouth's Portuguese players


PelePortuguese under-21 midfielder Pele used the 2007 Toulon Tournament and subsequent U-20 World Cup in Canada to make a name for himself and earn a move to Italian champions Internazionale. The talented youngster had previously been building his career with Vitoria Guimaraes, having been released by Benfica in 2005 when he was 17. Although Pele showed glimpses of his undoubted ability under Roberto Mancini in Milan, replacement manager Jose Mourinho was prepared to part with the midfielder as part of the deal which saw Ricardo Quaresma arrive from Porto.

Pele struggled to make an impact on his return to Portugal, and Porto agreed to loan him out to Portsmouth for the remainder of the 2008/09 season, where the player will hope to have a similar impact at Fratton Park as compatriots Pedro Mendes and Manuel Fernandes.
