Joao joined the Reds from Sporting Lisbon in February 2011 having impressed against Rodolfo Borrell's reserve side in the NextGen tournament earlier that season.


Teixera scored at the Kop end and looked a class act for Sporting as the Portuguese side outplayed the young Reds. Unfortunately he was injured when arrived and didn't feature until the summer of 2012 when he was involved with the Reserves for their pre-season fixtures.


A skilful, creative player who is comfortable playing anywhere across the midfield and who is something of a set-piece specialist.
