Star man - Edgar Silva

Edgar SilvaThe beanpole striker first made his mark in Portuguese football in 2006/07, where a series of impressive displays for Beira-Mar sparked a race between Sporting and FC Porto for his signature, with the Dragons winning out.

He failed to make his mark for Porto and was soon on his travels again, trying his luck in Serbia and Brazil. But his excellent aerial game and surprisingly skilful footwork for such a tall man (1.91 metres) seem to thrive only in Portugal and Edgar was back in the Liga Sagres last season, scoring 14 goals for Nacional, under coach Manuel Machado. No surprise therefore that when the tactician moved to Guimaraes he insisted on bringing his trusty marksman with him.
