Wigor Gomes

Recommended Posts

for those of you who watched him play for portugal fc last season just wanted to give you an update. Wigor has signed a 2 year contract at Portoguese 2nd div side SC Mirandela. The contract is similar to what the senior lower-mid earners make in the MLS. Not saying he could have set TFC on fire but it is sad that we practically begged TFC to have a look at him while he was living in Toronto and they didnt even bother listening. This kid wanted to play for TFC more then anything and would have accepted money similar to Nana's first contract and was on a free.

For the record i dont have anything to do with Portugal FC anymore just didnt bother making a new username.

It was crazy that TFC never looked at Wigor Gomes (he's Brazilian to answer the above question). He's was raw when playing with PFC, but he was a compelling combination of size, power, speed, scoring, and skill. I though TFC wanted him to train with them and play a reserve game (the reserve league was still around then), but there some difficulty as he was only on lone at PFC from a Brazilian side (Portugessa?).

pfc - Maybe you're a little out of the loop now, but do you know what the deal with PFC and Ronaille Calheira? They call him a PFC player on their website, but he's never played with them, nor does it seem like he ever will.

Calheira: the owner of pfc part-owns his rights it was never his intention to bring him to pfc tho its strictly business and a pr stunt...

TFC: They didnt want Wigor to train with them just fill a void to finish up their reserve season...anyone that has been called up for those know that no matter how well they do they arent there to be looked at...I know pretty much every local player who was called up in the first 2 seasons and they all say the same...having said that yes they decided not to use him due to his rights not being with PFC, it just happened to fast so we didnt have time to get him a "release" for the game...we had an agreement with Portoguesa to give up ownership rights if MLS came knocking as this was Wigors goal.

Thank for the info. PFC. It's too bad that no CSL player has gotten the chance to make the jump to TFC - it would a great story. The whole Calheira thing seems a bit strange, it's totally misleading for them to call him a PFC player.
