Notes - Very rare player shirt believed to have been issued to or worn by César during the 2001-02 season. The centre-back was on loan in the Portuguese capital from Spanish side Real Madrid and made 20 appearances in the League for As Águias this season as they finished in a disappointing 4th place. Highlights for the former Valladolid man included scoring a brace in the 3-2 win over Alverca and netting the opener in the 4-1 thumping of Salgueiros. This was the Brazilian's only season at Estádio da Luz, he moved to Austria Wien in the summer of 2003. The defender went on to play for a whole host of different clubs including Tigres, Olympiacos and Sporting Kansas to name just a few.
