"I want to make history at Sporting CP"
Mattheus Oliveira on his move to Alvalade
Just a few hours after Cristiano Piccini secured a move to Alvalade, Mattheus Oliveira followed with a four-year deal and a buy-out clause of 60,000,000.00€. Reflecting on the decision, the midfielder couldn't be happier.
"I chose Sporting CP because of the club's history. I am really happy with this opportunity and I didn't think twice when it came up. It was because of the history of the club and the players who have come before me. I also want to make history at Sporting CP", said Oliveira.
"When I came to Portugal Estoril was my wa into European football and I had thought about getting into one of the big Portuguese clubs", added the midfielder, finishing: "I can bring my quality to the squad and I want to help, either with quality or drive. I like getting on the ball and setting up my teammates. I can also shoot from range and pass well in different situations."
