Lecce's Portuguese players

Vitorino Antunes

AntunesVitorino Antunes burst onto the scene with Pacos Ferreira during the 2006/07 season, with the young left-back's superb displays leading to a host of clubs across Europe chasing his signature. As well as interest from Portuguese giants Benfica, Porto and Sporting, Antunes was the subject of scouting from Italy, Spain, France and England. The 20-year-old ultimately opted for Serie A and AS Roma, who loaned him out to Lecce for the 2008/09 campaign.

An international at both under-19 and under-21 level, Antunes was handed his first senior appearance by Luiz Felipe Scolari in 2007, and many feel the youngster has a strong chance of becoming a long-term regular with the Selecção das Quinas.
