“I am very happy. I want to thank Portimonense for opening the doors to me. I was impressed with the structures of the club and the excellent organization. I know that good Colombian players have already passed through here, such as Jackson Martínez and Angulo. and I hope to I’m doing better,” said the 21-year-old defender.

Wednesday will feature Sérgio Conceição, 26, formerly of Seraing (Belgium) and Yony González, 28, who was loaned from Benfica to Deportivo de Cali (Colombia).
