PHIL’S UP FOR MOR FROM FIL
BRADFORD manager Phil Parkinson has revealed Filipe Morais rejected offers from elsewhere to prove himself at the Bantams.
The 28-year-old was freed by Stevenage in the summer and initially signed a shortterm deal at Valley Parade.
But the Portuguese winger, who started out in England with Chelsea and has also had spells with Millwall, Hibernian, Inverness, St Johnstone and Oldham, has landed a deal until January.
“I like him as a player and as a person,” said Parkinson. “I think he has made a good contribution to the season so far and he has decided to stay with us until January.
“I was particularly impressed with his performance away at Crawley – I thought he was excellent.
“He had offers to go elsewhere on longer contracts, but was keen to stay here and keep proving himself.
“He has played a lot of games at this level and gives us another attacking option.
“He can play as an outand-out wide player, in behind the strikers or as one of three central midfielders if we stick with that.”
