Boston Victory S.C. is proud to announce the addition of Brazilian striker Lucas Pessanha. Last year Lucas finished the season with 25 goals in 17 games for PKKU in Finland leading them to promotion.
The addition of Lucas will immediately bolster the BVSC attack and prove to be a key asset in the quest for a championship. Head coach Sergio Taborda is excited about the opportunity to have Lucas on the team saying “he is a clinical striker with international experience and I cannot wait to get him in a BVSC jersey.”
Lucas who is known for his speed and finishing ability is looking forward to coming to the USA to join his former teammate Matheus Assaf Pereira also of PKKU. Although Lucas had many reasons to come to BVSC, he says his greatest reason is because of Boston’s project for the future saying “I like it a lot. And I’m sure that I made the right decision to go play in Boston.”
Lucas who has been a hit with the fans at all of his previous clubs, is hoping that his goals will find their way into the hearts of the fans and ultimately take the team to new heights.
