THE BALL – Confirmed reinforcement from Benfica (Estoril)

Estoril made official, this Wednesday, the hiring of Tiago Gouveia. The 21-year-old winger joins the canaries on loan from Benfica, valid until the end of the season.

Tiago Gouveia was part of the start of pre-season work for Benfica, at the orders of Roger Schmidt, but ended up being crossed out by the German coach.

The winger leaves Benfica, albeit on loan, five years later, having arrived at Luz in 2017, for the under-17s.

In the training course, the international for the Portuguese youth teams also represented União de Tires and Sporting.

Tiago Gouveia meets coach Nélson Veríssimo at Estoril, who coached him at Benfica in the B team and, later, in the main team.

Last season, the player played 25 matches for the bes of the eagles and two in the first team. He scored ten goals and made four assists.
