Left footed but can play anywhere
The young Portuguese forward can play anywhere up front although he usually features on the wing, on either flank despite being left footed. Trincão is quick and technically gifted with a vision that means he is a great creator of goals as well. The new Barça player also has the ability to take defenders on with his dribbling skills.
