The performance of the 20-year-old center in training has been in full compliance with Rui Vitória's expectations, which is why SAD, in line with the technician, decided, according to newspaper O Jogo , to abdicate a market invesment in order to guarantee more an option for the defensived.  He will be playing between A and B team like Keaton Parks just as needed
