Speaking to the club's official website upon his acquisition on loan from Porto, Agu explained why he chose to return for another spell at Vitoria.

He said, "I had other options in Portugal and abroad but when my manager told me about Victoria's interest I did not think twice.

"I already know this city and the club well and it was here that Stefano was born, about a year and eight months ago. My passage through Vitoria marked me a lot and for that reason the decision was easy."

 

Agu also revealed that he looks forward to having a fruitful spell on loan and recreating the goos memories he shared in his previous stint and thanked the fans for their support.

He said, "When I first saw the fans, they supported me a lot and I was very cherished. What I want to do is to leave my mark in this club, where in the recent past I also left a good image.

 

"I am happy with my return, the leaders of Victory too and I believe that the fans will also stay. The fans know that when I get on the field it's to give the maximum and I hope to help Vitória to make a great season."

Agu has been given the N0 46 jersey and is in line to make his first appearance for the club in their next fixture after the international break against his parent club Porto on Saturday, September 23.
