Ja temos goleador! Benfica signs mexican striker "Kikín" Fonseca

according to A Bola online:

Fonseca é o novo ponta-de-lança

O Benfica contratou o mexicano Fonseca, de 26 anos, para reforçar o ataque. O avançado deverá chegar esta quinta-feira a Lisboa e vai rubricar um compromisso válido para as próximas três épocas.

Está encontrado o «tal» ponta-de-lança de que tanto se falava. O Benfica contratou, ao Deportivo Cruz Azul, Francisco («Kikin&#187 Fonseca para as próximas três épocas. A notícia já foi confirmada pelo vice-presidente do clube mexicano, Alfredo Alvarez Cuevas, que no entanto se escusou a revelar o montante da transferência.

Fonseca esteve presente no Mundial da Alemanha em representação do México. No jogo com Portugal (fase de grupos), foi considerado um dos melhores em campo e marcou um golo, insuficiente para evitar a derrota por 2-1.

and O Jogo



-----------

We still remember him as having scored a goal against our selecção during the World Cup. Playing for Cruz Azul and Pumas, two of Mexico's most popular football clubs, he has been a star in the Mexican fisrt division those past years, which I have heard of to be a very competitive one. I did a little research and came across his career statistics which are as follows (appearances and goals in brackets) :

Fonseca joins Benfica

Where is Benfica getting all this Cash?


Fonseca didnt come with noe Fee?

They dont even know if and for how much they are going to sell simao.

Valencia has no chance of adding a forward to the Deal "( no Di Vio)

Emagin 2 Italian strikers on the field

We cant let that happen
On Portugals best team.

Viva ao Benfica e Forca ao Maritimo.

Think of the marketing side of things as well. Apparently he is a very popular player in Mexico. Myabe Benfica will get some coverage in Mexico now?

It seems to me that buying a player who has spent the last 4 seasons in good form is better than buying an Italian or Spanish forward who is passed it and is only interested in winding down their career. He is ambitious to break Europe, as very few Mexicans have. On the face of it a good pick up. He comes highly rated by many people i have spoken to.

Welcome to SLB!!

Whatever it is, that lad earned my sympathies ina record-breaking time. Hope he can get himself the same status in Portugal he already has in Mexico.

i rather have a taller and prooven striker in european competitions..our boards seem to buy players just because they score against portuguese teams, remember Sabry, Karadas not that far ago and now Kikin Fonseca who scored against us in WC.

Seems like we have a new Benfiquista among us, welcome on board Poncho_Jr

I by the way think Fonseca has more potential then those two you mentioned had. Still indeed Benfica seems to have that habbit, very true, without it being a useful habbit to us as for now. I have faith that Kikín will become a great one within the red dress. Being a star-player in Mexico ain't easy as well from what I've heard, the league is said to be highly competetive.

Isn't that the same sponsor that Porto recently had? Now the Benfica shirt reminds me of a Porto away shirt or something

La Juve? Lasciamo perdere.
