Ferreira Is New Vasco Boss
After weeks of speculation, Vasco da Gama have finally confirmed that their new owner is, Mario Ferreira,
the majority shareholder of Portuguese top-flight outfit, Vitoria Sport Club de Guimaraes.
Ferreira, who has been described as "very ambitious and driven" has always wanted to get involved at the highest level. At onepoint a few seasons ago, he was linked with Gauteng Vodacom League side, Lusitano, but that didn't materialise.
"We hopefully have found the right guy to get involved with the Vasco name," club chairman Mario das Neves told Soccer Laduma. When we were looking for a buyer, it wasn't just finding a buyer, but someone who would fit the club correctly. This in order to make sure the amateur section and kids were looked after. They bought into that vision straight away."
Besides playing an instrumental role in Portugal, Ferreira is also the chairperson of ACP (Portuguese Club) which plays in the amateur Pretoria district league.
