Northern club Famalicão are currently Portugal’s sensation. With four wins and one draw in five games, they are currently leaving the likes of Benfica, Porto and Sporting behind in the league table.
One of their players who has been standing out is Pedro Gonçalves, who’s joined them on a free move from Wolverhampton Wanderers this summer.
Gonçalves has scored in the 4-2 win over Paços de Ferreira at the weekend, and it turns out that his time at Wolves was remembered during the celebration.
The 21-year-old has touched his fists while looking at the cameras, and newspaper O Jogo knows it was directed to his former Wolves teammate Ruben Neves.
O Jogo then managed to interview the Wolverhampton midfielder, who explained the friendship they had at the Molineux side.
“My wife, who was pregnant, went to Portugal in February last season, and from then until May, Pedro and I moved in together,” Ruben Neves told O Jogo. “We agreed that we were going to celebrate like this when we scored. I scored first and now it was his turn. It was a kind of dedication to each other.”
Neves told O Jogo they still have a big friendship, regardless of living far away from each other: We talk almost every day, whether it’s playing on the Playstation or something.
“They have made a brilliant start. However, Pedro always gives me the message that they are still down to earth.”
