PEDRO PORRO bid an emotional farewell to the Sporting Lisbon fans following their Taca de Liga final defeat to Porto on Saturday.
The right-back is expected to land in London tonight ahead of his switch to Tottenham.
And he signed off by playing one final game for the Lisbon giants.
But he didn't get the fairytale ending as Sporting were beaten 2-0 by Porto in the Portuguese equivalent of the League Cup final.
Porro played the full 90 minutes and struck the bar with a stunning effort, but he wasn't able to claim silverware on his final appearance.
And the 23-year-old appeared to be welling up when he waved goodbye to fans for the final time.

Porro stood there for a couple of seconds applauding before waving and then tapping his chest.
The Sporting supporters responded by clapping back.
He's been with the club for two-and-a-half years but is now on the verge of moving to the Premier League.
According to Fabrizio Romano, all the contracts have been signed and a verbal agreement has been reached with Spurs set to pay £39m.
