Aylton Boa Morte: Nephew of Orlando Pirates flop relegated in Portugal


Former Orlando Pirates forward Luis Boa Morte's nephew has suffered relegation from Portugal's top flight.

Portimonense were relegated from the Portuguese Primeira Liga on Sunday after finishing in 17th place in the league standings, just one point behind Vitoria Setubal, whose final-day victory steered them to safety.

Among the players who have now dropped to the nation's second division is Aylton Boa Morte, who is the nephew of former Portugal international and Orlando Pirates winger Luis Boa Morte.

The 26-year-old forward scored four goals in 33 league appearances for the season, but his contribution was unable to help Portimonense avoid relegation.

His uncle, Luis, arrived at Pirates in 2012 with a big reputation following his exploits in the Premier League and with the Portugal national team, but he managed just three appearances with the Buccaneers before returning to England later that year.

Elsewhere, former Kaizer Chiefs defender Teenage Hadebe suffered a similar fate after his club Yeni Malatyaspor were relegated from the Turkish Super Lig.
