‘He's exactly the player that they need'

Joel Campbell at Sporting Lisbon

By Lloyd Webb

Luis Boa Morte says Joel Campbell is exactly the sort of player that Sporting Lisbon need.

The Costa Rica international will spend this season on loan in the Primeira Liga, and Boa Morte expects Campbell to thrive in Portugal.

"He’s exactly the type of player they need and he’s exactly the player Sporting Lisbon were looking for,” said Boa Morte, who played for both Sporting and Arsenal.

“He’s got all the qualities to play for them and as long as he does well, I’m sure we’ll be the beneficiaries here because he’ll come back an even better player. That’s the most important thing.

"He’s really powerful when he drives forward with the ball on the right-hand side. He’s definitely a handful for defenders."
