Carlos is a 19 year old winger who has made the successful leap this season from Sporting Lisbon’s B side, to their first team squad. He made his debut for the Lions on the 5th October. Of Guinea-Bissau descent, Carlos has represented Portugal at all levels from under 15 to 19.
Dan Chapman, senior partner of Full Contact, said “Carlos is a player who wishes to work with us as a result of a project we have been undertaking for sometime, in collaboration with some very admirable and hard working individuals, to represent the interests of those many talented players that descend from Guinea-Bissau. Bocundji Ca appointed us last year, and Liverpool’s Yalany Baio is also working with us, and we are looking forward to assisting Carlos as what promises to be a very successful career for him develops. With Lee Payne being fluent in Portuguese, and us having represented players who play in that league already, this is an important step forwards for us.”
Lee Payne, head of Full Contact’s Football Agency team, said “Carlos has really shone as a player over the last six months, first for Portugal in the under 19 European Championships but then in breaking through in to the first team set up at Sporting. There is no doubt he is a very talented player, who causes defences real problems. He is at a great club who have a tradition for developing talented wingers in particular – such as Ronaldo – and I am sure when the time is right for him and Sporting we will see Carlos elsewhere in Europe, perhaps here in the UK.”
