Mauro seals Belenenses move

FC Paços de Ferreira winger Mauro will join CF Os Belenenses after signing a three-and-a-half-year deal.

Family connection
Belenenses agreed a €200,000 fee for the 28-year-old, who will leave Paços Ferreira at the end of December to join the team his father Laurindo used to play for. The northern club insisted on keeping Mauro until the transfer window opens in January.

Sporting sensation
Mauro became a household name in Portugal by scoring a hat-trick as Paços Ferreira thrashed double winners Sporting Clube de Portugal 4-0 in September.
