‘Jorge Jesus convinced me’

Fenerbahce football player Lincoln Henrique gave an important statement to the media of his country.

According to information that Sporx gathered from Portuguese media Ojogo, Lincoln Henrique told Fenerbahçe about the transfer process.


The summary of the statements of the Brazilian star is as follows:

“Jorge Jesus spoke to me before coming to Fenerbahce. He convinced me, he is really a good coach. I already knew Turkey. I had a loan period at Rizespor when my testimony was Gremio. I love the country and its culture. It is very strong and it is a competitive league of high quality, 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. he can still dream of the championship.

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


I have not received any offers from Porto. There were many rumors about Porto, but as far as I understand from the management of Santa Clara, no offers came. I knew I couldn’t play for any team in Portugal unless an offer came. When I hear Porto’s claims, I can’t say I didn’t like it. Everyone knows the size of Porto. My favorite European giant. At that time, there were 2 clubs other than Fenerbahçe that looked after me. I’m glad I chose Turkey.

I got the worst injury a football player would want to get. So far, I have missed at least 2 weeks due to my injury. It will now continue until October. I love to play, so I will work and come back stronger.”
