The former striker, nicknamed Super Mario, marked an era at the Dragons and increases the spoils of the Porto museum with the two trophies.
Mário Jardel presented the FC Porto museum with the Golden Boot, which rewards Europe’s top scorer each season, and the Silver Boot he won in the years he represented the Dragons, between 1996 and 2000.
Author of 168 goals in 175 games played with the blue and white jersey, Super Mário, a nickname he earned for his impressive finishing ability, was one of the figures of the fifth championship won by FC Porto, a unique record in Portuguese football.
In 1999, he won the Golden Boot with a total of 36 goals. Two years earlier, he had won the Silver Shoe. In 2002, Mário Jardel again won the Golden Boot, but with the Sporting shirt, scoring 42 goals. The Brazilian international had already offered this trophy to the lions.
Last year, the former footballer, who was selected by Brazil, denounced the theft of the two Golden Boots. A few hours later, they will be picked up by the Brazilian police.
