Thankfully I can carry on here in Portugal, in a great team that I already know. I wasn't expecting it to happen to soon, but I am really happy and I can help Sporting. I played against Sporting when I was with Benfica and now with Estoril. The team is totally different now to what it was two or three years ago, with some great players and having such a good coach is really important. He (Jesus) already worked with me in Benfica and he taught me a lot."
