New directions, new air. After a brilliant campaign with the national soccer team, the Mambas, in which he played in all three games, two of which as a starter, Bruno Langa is breathing Spanish air.
The Mozambican left-back will continue his career in Spain, more specifically with Almería in the country’s top league. After two and a half seasons with Chaves, the 26-year-old will be moving on, albeit initially on a temporary basis, as the agreement between the clubs is for a loan until the end of the season.
However, the Mozambican could even stay at the Spanish club beyond that date, as the deal includes an option to buy. The news was reported by Fabrizio Romano and confirmed by Portuguese newspaper Record.
Bruno Langa, who started his career at Maxaquene, a club he represented until 2018, and then moved to the Black Bulls before heading to Portugal, will swap Desportivo de Chaves, who are second from bottom in the Portuguese league with 13 points from 20 games, for Almeria, who are bottom of LaLiga with six points from 22 games.
In addition to the Mozambican clubs, Langa represented Amora and Vitória de Setúbal in Portugal between the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons, before signing a permanent contract with Amora in the 2020/21 season.
In the 2021/22 season, he signed for Desportivo de Chaves, a club for which he played 80 games, scoring one goal and making two assists. He’s off on a new adventure in Spain, where he could make his debut on Saturday when Almeria visit Valencia.
Bruno Langa becomes the third Mozambican player to play in Spain’s top league, after Simão Mathe and Reinildo Mandava.
