"I'm going to make an effort so that people can see me playing my kind of football, even in a new environment," said Miura, who will turn 56 at the end of the month, after signing.

He started his professional career from Yura at the age of 15, and in 1986. Portugal will be the fifth foreign country in which he will play, after having spent the years in Brazil, Italy, Croatia and Australia.
