Bruno was signed by Leeds after George Graham spotted him while
watching Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and is now a first-team regular.
He has a powerful shot and good ball control and generally operates
in a left-sided role.
He scored a couple of excellent goals in 1997-98, and set up a
few more, but needs to control his temper: he's picked up quite a
few bookings and has been in danger of seeing the red card on at
least 2 occasions so far.
Injured at the start of the 98-99 season, he worked his way back
to fitness and celebrated his return with a goal against Wimbledon.
He never really regained his place in the midfield under David
O'Leary In summer 1999, he was mentioned as make-weight in several
transfer deals, but remains at the club - but wants to leave unless
he gets first team games.
He moved on to Sheffield United in October 1999 for
£500,000 but returned to Portugal - on loan at Uniao Leiria -
after falling out with the management and then moved to SC
Beira-Mar permanently in 2001. In 2002-03 he moved on to play for
Santa Clara in the Portuguese 1 Liga.
Darryl Powell of Sheffield Wednesday says: bruno was a pro i
played golf with him a couple of times he was nearly as good at
golf then football.
Bruno's teacher! says: I was at Bruno's head teacher at school
in Portugal. He was always a delight at sports, but was a cheeky
rascal in class.
