Speaking about Joel is speaking about one of the best physiotherapist I’ve ever had in my life as an athlete. Apart from being a great friend, he is an excellent professional.

I had an injury in my patellar tendon and we worked together for 3 months, three weeks and three days. It was a very long process, just me and Joel.

It was only the two of us in my recovery process and I ended up having a great season. In the first goal of that season (celebration in the photo) we ran towards each other in the 1-0 against Belenenses, with enormous satisfaction because only we knew what we had gone through…
