VIDEO: Panutche's First Interview
Argyle’s new signing Panutche Camará cannot wait to take to the pitch at the Theatre of Greens.
The midfielder, 23, joined the Pilgrims upon expiry of his Crawley Town contract, having been tempted to make the career move by manager Ryan Lowe’s signature style of play.
“I’m so happy to be here, and excited to start to play on this pitch”, said Camará.
“I was in Portugal, and the manager [Ryan Lowe] called me and said ‘I want you to play for Plymouth’. I am so happy when the manager said that to me.
“I think the way Plymouth play is good. They play good football, I appreciate that. When I played against Plymouth I saw the Green Army has a very good atmosphere.”
Camará, born in Guinea-Bissau, began his footballing career on English soil at Barnsley, but left Oakwell before graduating to the first-team – joining Dulwich Hamlet in non-league.
Impressive performances for the Hamlet placed him back on the EFL radar, and he swiftly became a fan favourite with Crawley Town.
He said: “I enjoyed my three years at Crawley, but now I want to look forward to playing League One. It’s a step in my career, and I think that Plymouth can make me go to a higher level.
“It’s difficult. I loved the Crawley Town fans – they appreciate me, they support me every time. But now, it’s a new time, I’m so happy to be here.”
