The fourth-best scorer in the league, with 15 goals for Tondela, as he was loaned by Villarreal, Mario Gonzalez reached SC Braga definitively, with Minho paying 1.5 million euros for the entire pass, even if the Spanish team retained 25 percent of the capital gain in the future. The termination clause, this clause, was set at €30 million.
“I am very happy to arrive at a club like SC Braga, a historic emblem, a great club in the Portuguese League. Even before the first training session on the orders of Carlos Carvalhal, the striker told the club’s podiums, I am very happy, happy and eager to start and meet my team-mates.
Spanish, French and of course the coveted Portuguese clubs Mario Gonzalez prioritized Minho’s offer, which confirmed A BOLA, appeared on June 7, when Antonio Salvador expected the competition, and on a trip to Madrid, he negotiated directly with Fernando Roig, president of Villarreal, leaving the deal practically sealed.
“The SC Braga proposal was what I liked the most. I knew about the show and it was in my mind that SC Braga was the best. I am here to support the team and achieve collective goals,” the striker explained, assuming European competitions were a determining factor: “SC Braga plays in the Europa League, and that was a major factor in the decision.”
And after Tondela’s 15 goals in 2020/2021, what is the goal now for the new club?
“I don’t really like setting these goals. The best thing is to work day in and day out, to be good within the team and then the goals will definitely reach. I hope it will be more than last year.”
