In South Africa there are many football links to Portugal and under the banner Luso Legends we attempt to take you on an adventure to discover the best of Portuguese football in South Africa.
The links go far and wide. From the National First Division club in Cape Town, Vasco da Gama, who for many years have been a very strong Portuguese community club to the South Africans who have played in Portugal. Also, Luso Legends aims to be an extension of Vasco Legends which was run while Dino Gomes was still a director at the club.
South Africa’s best export of all time is Benni McCarthy who won the UEFA Champions League while playing for FC Porto while another former Bafana Bafana hero, Eric Tinkler, spent time at Vitoria Setubal.
We will also look at a few young players that have just moved to clubs in Portugal in an attempt to build a career in Europe while we also explore the many South African players playing in the country with Portuguese roots.
And don’t forget the Angolans and Mozambicans that have made a big impact either in South Africa or around the world who are as much Luso Legends as anybody else.
