Manchester City who has crossed the world, thank you for having always been present in the 115 years of history. Three and a half years ago, I said that I grew up Sporting and I breathe Sporting, but I’m not Sporting. today, I repeat the same sentence. to serve Sporting, with the partners and for the partners but never above the partners. But I have a great ambition: that all members can vote and participate in the life of their club. It is within our reach, if the partners wish it, it will be the mandate of all the partners. To all partners, take care of Sporting, no one will do it if it’s not us.”

In closing, Varandas addressed a word to the elements who have now ceased their functions and who accompanied him in his first term: “Sporting are eternally grateful to you. Sporting above us. We are the same but more experienced but also with scars and marks of those who act as the bumper of the club. I promise to serve Sporting but also more scars. There is a lot of Sporting to grow without giving up our values. Sporting players want more, we want more. Let’s keep going.”
