Sa Pinto



Sa Pinto
Sa Pinto is a strong, uncompromising striker whose tremendous goal ratio is often eclipsed by his suspect temperament.

The controversial striker was banned from the Portuguese game in 1997 after attacking assistant national coach Rui Aguas when he discovered he had been dropped from the team.

He has since moved to Real Sociedad in Spain, but will offer a real threat in Group A if he can channel his strength and aggression more positively in the Low Countries.

Bobby Robson is a huge admirer of Sa Pinto and is thought to be lining up a bid for him this summer.
