Macau’s young football player David Cardoso signed a contract last week to move from Portuguese team Boavista FC to French team FC Girondins de Bordeaux.

Cardoso started his footballer career in Macau before moving to Portugal at the age of 18, where he played for several teams, including Feirense, Mafra and Cova da Piedade. He then joined SC Braga, a main league team, to play in the second division team, and most recently played for Boavista FC, another main league team where he had been playing on the second division team.

According to information made available by the French club, the defender is joining the Bordeaux city club on a two-year contract.

For the time being, Cardoso is also expected to be playing for the French Ligue 1 club second division team.

Cardoso is one of the French club’s highlights of the winter transfer window. The club also announced the recruitment of the young French footballer, Yacine Adli, coming from French reigning champion Paris Saint-Germain FC.

David Cardoso is the son of Rui Cardoso, a Portuguese coach and long-term Macau resident who has coached several local championship teams. RM
