Portuguese football player and manager Fernando Albino de Sousa Chalana has passed away.
Widely regarded as one of the greatest talents of his era in Portuguese football, the diminutive left winger’s main asset was his ball control and dribbling skills.
His career, highly troubled by injuries, was mainly spent at Benfica, where he also later worked as a manager.
He helped Portugal reach the semi-finals at Euro 1984 prior to his physical problems.
Other than his main nickname, Chalana was also dubbed Astérix, Chalanix (as his moustache resembled the comic character).
