Recruited at a golden price by OM this winter, Vitinha had a long time to adapt before delivering his double against ESTAC at the Vélodrome. The Portuguese’s situation was of great concern, especially since he did not seem to be fully integrated. But for Simon Banza, Vitinha is satisfied.
Vitinha symbolized the bad patch that OM went through before the victory against Troyes last week. As a sign, it was he who revived the Olympian machine by scoring twice against Aubois. These are also his first two goals in the Olympian jersey, a deliverance for a boy who was beginning to doubt and perhaps regret his transfer.

At his former club, Braga, Vitinha evolved with Simon Banza. The native of Creil in the Paris region expressed the feeling that crosses his former teammate since he joined OM.
“He does not regret his choice”
For Telefoot, Simon Banza said more about Vitinha. “ He is very, very happy to have signed for Marseille. He does not regret his choice “said the striker. Everything is going well for the Marseille rookie.
