He’s a player that you only need several minutes to see his natural football talent,” Shi said. “In recent years, Fabio has been developing very fast and now has proven himself in Porto’s first team, which is a top squad. Our head coach’s requirement for quality is very high, but he thinks Fabio is an important signing who will help the team immediately this season. The timing of this deal is similar to the timing of when we bought Rúben Neves; we’ve waited for the right time to get a high-quality player at the right price.”
