“I do like to feel the ball, but I’m also very aggressive in pressing and in following my opponents. So, I can certainly play with our coach’s game system,” he told the club’s official website.
The 25-year-old went on to say the move also suits him because he has played at the highest level and second division of the Portuguese League in the past.
He added, “For me, this is another good new step in my career. In previous seasons, I played in Portugal; in both first and second divisions. My goal is to play at the highest level with Beerschot again as soon as possible.”
