One of European’s rising football stars, 19 years old Portuguese forward João Félix received a special gift from SAK at his hometown Viseu on Wednesday (June 26th) in a ceremony in which he received the symbolic tittle of Viseu’s Ambassador.


After completing his move from Portuguese champions SL Benfica to Atlético de Madrid, the prodigy considered “the new Ronaldo” received by the hands of Viseu’s Mayor Almeida Henriques a pair of customised shin guards that carry his hometown red and yellow colors as well as his image while playing for the Portuguese National Team.



“One of the most outstanding companies we have in Viseu is SAK, that I’m sure João Félix knows. SAK is a company that develops football shin guards to some of the most outstanding athletes in the world. They asked me to give you this pair of shin guards with your image and the county’s image. It’s a symbolism for you to protect yourself” said Henriques during the ceremony.



One of highest transfers fees in football history

Félix, who was a crucial part in Benfica’s incredible run to the Portuguese tittle this season, was signed by Atletico de Madrid for a fee of 120 million euros – the fifth highest in football history. He joins this Top 5 most expensive transfers list that has Neymar (222m from FC Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain), Philippe Coutinho (145m from Liverpool to FC Barcelona), Kylian Mbappé (135m from AS Monaco to Paris Saint-Germain) and Ousmane Dembelé (125m from Borussia Dortmund to FC Barcelona). Before Félix’s move to Atletico, Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo was the 5th in the list (117m from Real Madrid to Juventus).
