‘Jorge Jesus convinced me’

Fenerbahce football player Lincoln Henrique made important statements to the press of his country.

According to the news that Sporx compiled from the Portuguese press Ojogo, Lincoln Henrique told Fenerbahçe about the transfer process.


The highlights of the Brazilian star’s statements are as follows:

“Jorge Jesus talked to me before he came to Fenerbahce. He convinced me, he is really a great coach. I already knew Turkey. I had a loan period in Rizespor when my testimonial was in Gremio. I love the country and its culture. It is very strong and It is a league with a high level of competition. There are quality players in every team. It is not easy to win the championship, but we still have a chance. I will pray for my teammates to win. We can still dream of championship.

My meeting with Jesus was effective in my choice of Fenerbahçe. He asked me what I thought about the team and the league. I told him about my experiences during the Rizespor period. Talking to him made the transfer easier for me.

I have not received any offers from Porto. There were a lot of rumors about Porto, but as far as I understand from Santa Clara executives, no offers came. I knew I wouldn’t be able to play for any team in Portugal unless the offer came. When I hear the Porto claims, I can’t say I didn’t like it. Everyone knows the size of Porto. A European giant I admire. At that time, there were 2 clubs other than Fenerbahçe that took care of me. I am happy that I chose Turkey.

I had the worst injury a football player would ever want to experience. So far, I have missed at most 2 weeks due to my injury. It will now run until October. I love to play, so I will work and come back stronger.”
