Francisco Trincao has been named the Liga NOS Player of the Month for February, picking up the award for the second month in a row.

The 20-year-old, who will join Barcelona on July from Braga, continued to impress and scored in wins over Sporting and Vitoria Setubal.

Trincao has also carried that form into March, netting two goals in two appearances against Maritimo and Portimonense before the season was halted due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The youngster now has seven goals for the season, with six of them having come since the turn of the year.

Former Braga boss Ricardo Sa Pinto has spoken about Trincao recently and his forthcoming move to Barcelona.

He told Marca that Barca have made a “great signing” but also warned “they will need to be very patient with him because he is young and lacks experience.”
