Olhanense, 2nd in the Serie H of the Portuguese Football Championship, 17 points behind leader Vitória de Setúbal but with two games overdue, this week secured five reinforcements from a seated team.
Algarve attacking midfielder Chico Batista, 25, ex-Esp. Lagos, second best scorer in the same series (six goals in nine games), was signed until the end of the 2020/21 season.
Box-to-box midfielder Matheus Clemente, 22, with dual Portuguese and Brazilian nationality, arrives on loan from Famalicão until the end of the season for the team coached by Edgar Davids.
To the wings of the attack, also until the end of this season, Akram Salhi, 23, a native of the Netherlands (with dual Moroccan nationality), who was without a club, and Italian midfielder Federico Tomaselli (ex-GRAP) arrived, 24 years old.
Brazilian forward Ruster Santos, 24, joined Olhanense on loan from Portimonense until the end of the season.
Two weeks ago, the club had already secured central João Gomes (ex-Torreense), while, in the opposite sense, in the last few weeks the Algarve club saw Leleco, Jacopo Finessi and Ivo Braz leave.
On Sunday, at 3:00 pm, at Estádio da Nora, in Ferreiras, the Davids team «receives» Mineiro Aljustrelense. It will be the third meeting at the "borrowed house", due to the poor condition of the pitch at the José Arcanjo Stadium.
