David Brazão has joined Pacific FC ahead of the 2023 Canadian Premier League season.
Brazão most recently played for SU Sintrense in the third tier of the Portuguese football league system.
The 21-year-old spent time within the “Schools of Football” of some of Portugal’s most historic clubs as a youth player. Brazão began his youth career with Sporting CP before moving to Benfica to play with the club’s U17 and U19 teams, and then spent multiple seasons with Belenenses academy before graduating to their Senior Team.
Brazão is a very creative and technical player with fantastic passing ability. The young attacker has goals and assists in his game and is coming off a very strong season with Sintrense. He was an important player for the team as they battled near the top of the table, having received player of the week honours multiple times with the club.
This season, Brazão has six goals and three assists in 17 appearances. He is a goal threat from both dead ball and open play situations, and is comfortable playing as a no. 10 or on either wing. Brazão has multiple goals from direct free-kicks this season and is also the designated set-piece taker for Sintrense.
Pacific’s ability to develop young players fits perfectly with the stage of career Brazão is in. The youngster has tons of potential and will look to fully unlock it on the Island.
“Brazão takes an intelligent approach to the game and he is technically evolved,” says Pacific FC assistant coach Armando Sa. “He is a young and naturally talented player who learned from some of the most distinguished schools in Portugal, and we are happy to welcome Brazão to our team.”
With Brazão confirmed for 2023, Pacific FC’s squad now officially has 20 players as preseason training continues.
