Neno

Thousands of people said goodbye today, in Guimarães, to Neno, who died on Thursday night, with a huge display of affection for a “consensual” figure in Portuguese football, considered by many to be the “best” of all.

The president of Vitória SC Miguel Pinto Lisboa, stressed that it was “a day of pain for Vitória, for Guimarães and, in general, for the whole country”.

“The dimension of this tribute shows the strength of Neno, but also of Vitória and the city. We want this strength to come out even more and we want to follow what was Neno’s legacy, of strength, unity, genuineness and joy”, said the president of the Victorian before the beginning of the funeral march.
