01/07/22: Balzan continued to strengthen their squad with the signing of 28-year-old Brazilian forward Matheus Nogueira Albuquerque de Souza.

Matheus came through the Academy at Corinthians in Brazil and went on to play for Rio Branco, Caldas Novas, Feirense, Diadema and Galicia in Brazil before signing his first professional contract with Bahia in 2013.

In 2019 Matheus moved to Portugal where he played for 3 seasons with Praiense, Amora and last season with Lusitania of Lourosa.

Matheus is best described as a typical number 9 with good strength in the box, a very good eye for goal and very consistent finishing.

We welcome Matheus to Malta and we are sure that he can be a very important part of the squad and help the club greatly in fulfilling our ambitions for season 22/23.
