Anger as Porto hires witch-doctor to win Portuguese league

Fans of Portuguese clubside FC Porto are angry and incensed after it was revealed that the club hired a witch doctor to help win the league title.

Porto president Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa employed Madalena Aroso as a club employee five months ago.

While Aroso was officially employed as a ‘doctor,’ Porturguese sports daily Abola said he is a practicing clairvoyant – not a medical doctor.

He is reputed with the skill of  reading the future and predicting match results.

The anger of fans of the two-time UEFA champions league winners furtehr increase when it was discovered that Aroso earns a monthly wage of £13,000, equating to £156,000 a year.

This makes him the highest paid employee at the club.

However, Porto have repeatedly postured themselves as firm believers in Financial Fair Play rules – yet have gone ahead to break the bank for metaphysical success!
Porto lost the Primera Liga title to bitter rivals Sporting Lisbon last season.

However, it appears things are panning out nicely this term as coach Sergio Conceicao’s unbeaten side are currently top of the league with 14 of 34 matches played.

They are ahead of champions Sporting only on goal difference, with Benfica four points back.

Fans of Porto as well as neutral followers of Portuguese football recall that the club accused Benfica of using witchcraft to in the title in 2017.

In fact, Porto’s communications director Francisco J.

Marques accused then-Benfica president Luis Filipe Vieira of paying a witchdoctor called Dr Armando Nhaga, from Guinea-Bissau £65,000 to secure the championship that year.

Many now feel the hypocrisy and double-faced posturing is on FC Porto – who are yet to deny or confirm the accusation of using a witchdoctor to win the league.

This will not be the first time Porto are accused of using witchcraft to gain success on the pitch.

Former club president Delane Vieira was accused of releasing two frogs into a Vienna Stadium to help Porto win the Champions League (then called the European Cup) in 1987.
