Halifax Wanderers Football Club are excited to announce the signing of Cuban Canadian midfielder Alejandro Portal for the remainder of the 2021 Canadian Premier League season with a club option for 2022.
Portal, 25, has over five years of professional playing experience in the Campeonato Nacional de Fútbol de Cuba, Cuba’s top level league. Over the years he has made 6 appearances at the National level, which includes 3 appearances in the 2019 Gold Cup. Portal made his debut for his native country on December 11, 2015.
“As we head into the second half of the season it’s important to manage injuries and player health across the squad,” explains Wanderers VP of Football Operations, Matt Fegan. “We were looking to add quality and versatility in a few areas on the pitch. Alejandro is a full international who can play full back or in midfield. He will add to our competition for places as we make the push for playoffs in 2021 and beyond.”
Portal joins the Wanderers as the 23rd member of the roster after Kareem Sow returns to l’Université de Montréal after completing his CPL-U SPORTS contract. The Wanderers also recently signed Canadian forward Mamadi Camara from PSLQ as the 22nd member of their roster.
“Portal shows good technical quality, with good passing range,” describes Wanderers Head Coach and General Manager Stephen Hart. “His versatility should prove useful to us.”
