Pedro Poro bid farewell to Sporting Lisbon fans.
Sporting lost 0-2 to Porto in the 2022-23 season Portuguese League Cup final held at the Magalyanges Pessoa Stadium in Leiria, Portugal on the 29th at 4:45 am (Korean time).
Ahead of this game, news of Tottenham’s recruitment was reported. Fabricio Romano, who is well versed in the European football transfer market, added his signature comment, ‘Here we go’, through personal SNS, saying, “Tottenham have reached a complete agreement with Sporting Lisbon on the signing of the prisoner.”
“If everything goes according to plan, everything will be finished within 24 hours. Poro will say goodbye tonight and sign a contract with Tottenham until 2028. He will board the flight to London,” he explained.
Poro is the player Tottenham wanted the most in the transfer market this winter. Poro was a player whose potential was recognized in his childhood enough to be in Manchester City. It was after moving to Sporting that his potential exploded. He started to be recognized last season by posting a great offensive point of 5 goals and 7 assists in 35 official matches. 안전놀이터
Tottenham approached manager Antonio Conte to sign a prisoner in response to a request for reinforcement on the right side. Negotiations were not easy. Tottenham wanted a player and cash plus method, but Sporting insisted on not selling the player unless it was a buyout. Recruitment seemed difficult as the prisoner also responded professionally.
Also, Sporting wanted to transfer after the final match in order to win the League Cup. Despite Sporting’s uncooperative attitude, Tottenham eventually agreed with Sporting by paying 45 million euros (about 60.4 billion won), the amount of the prisoner’s buyout, in installments.
Poro was unable to lead the team to victory in their farewell match against Sporting. After the game, Poro did not leave the field immediately. He remained on the pitch to bid farewell to the Sporting fans. When Poro greeted him, the Sporting fans responded with a standing ovation.
