Kialonda Gaspar has returned to peak form, impressing with his outstanding performances for Estrela da Amadora in the Portuguese Liga. After a period of decline following his participation in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) with Angola, Gaspar has regained his composure and stability, much to the delight of his coach, Sérgio Vieira.

In the final match of the Portuguese Liga season, Estrela da Amadora secured a 1-0 victory over Gil Vicente.

This win was a fitting end to their campaign, but it was Gaspar’s performance that truly stood out.

The central defender displayed exceptional focus and skill throughout the match, earning high praise from Vieira.

“Kialonda Gaspar played a very good match, very focused,” Vieira commented, highlighting the defender’s disciplined and composed display.

Vieira acknowledged that Gaspar’s stint with the Angolan national team had disrupted his rhythm and stability. “Going to the AFCON with the national team affected his stability because it broke the regularity of his daily life.

Despite everything, he surpassed himself a lot and this match proves the value of Gaspar. He is a player for teams that can fight for titles,” Vieira noted, emphasizing Gaspar’s resilience and potential.

The coach went on to draw comparisons between Gaspar and some of football’s great defenders. “He has great character, great ability, and having a context around him that helps him focus every day will lead to performances like this.

There were times when he took the pressure off, turned on himself, went the other way. Aspects that we saw at Puyol, at Piqué at Guardiola’s Barça.

He played a very good match, like everyone else,” Vieira stated, likening Gaspar’s qualities to those of legendary players Carles Puyol and Gerard Piqué.

Gaspar’s resurgence has been a key factor in Estrela da Amadora’s strong finish to the season.

His ability to anchor the defense and lead by example has not only bolstered the team’s backline but also inspired confidence throughout the squad.

Vieira’s admiration for Gaspar’s talent and dedication is evident, and the coach is optimistic about what the future holds for the Angolan defender.

As Estrela da Amadora looks ahead to the next season, Gaspar’s renewed form will undoubtedly be crucial.

His performances have demonstrated that he is capable of competing at the highest level, and with continued support and stability, he is poised to become a cornerstone of the team’s ambitions.

This season finale victory, coupled with Gaspar’s standout performance, marks a promising end to the campaign for Estrela da Amadora and sets a positive tone for the challenges ahead.
