Forward Flemato Sanó and Leonarda Cá are the new signings of the female team of the Eagles of Bissau for the 2020-2021 season.
Athletes signed a one-year contract with the club led by Wilson Pereira Batista. They never played the championship organized by the FFGB but they played in their sectors.
Female Sanó known as “Neymar” is from the sector of Caine, region of Tombali, while Leonarda Cá came from the team from the island dis Bijagós. The footballers were introduced at the club’s headquarters in Bissau, and were discovered by the Prospecting and Player Assessment team at the Bissau club.
Leonarda Cá thanked the direction of the club for the opportunity to reach the squad said that it is a dream that was contracted as eagles player.
On the other hand, Flemato Sanó told reporters that Benfica is a great club, champion in title and promises surprises for Benfica fans.
The Club Manager, after the presentation of the two new signings, revealed that one of the priorities of the club management is betting on the female team, as recommended by FIFA.
“FIFA is betting on the development of women’s football and the club must follow this dynamic. The women’s team will be almost equated to the men’s team, because both are senior teams from Benfica and we cannot make a difference between both.” Said Wilson Pereira.
The female team of Sport Bissau e Benfica started to compete officially 4 years ago in the national championship and in the 2018-2019 season it was crowned champion.
Last season women’s teams
did not compete due to the pandemic of the new corona virus.
