You've got to love Nani.
The Manchester United outcast looked to have seen the best days of his career when he headed for Turkey, but after an impressive Euro 2016 where he became a European Champion and was awarded the silver boot (after Cristiano Ronaldo gave it to him), he earned himself a move to La Liga.
Valencia were the team that decided to give one of the most frustrating players another chance in the big leagues and the #17 shirt for good measure. While capable of some jaw-dropping moments of skill, Nani has always has consistency issues but Valencia are delighted to have him at the club, so much so that they decided to opt for a stadium unveiling.
It's never a good look to unveil a player to an empty stadium, so Valencia decided to hire some capoeira dancers to jazz it up a little. And jazz it up, it certainly did.

Nani's got some skills.
To be fair, there's something admirable about just saying "Fuck it, lets throw some capoeira dancers in to make it less boring" as the Valencia marketing department clearly did, but it's still very strange. The links to Portugal are clear but at the end of the day these people are dance-fighting, which peaked at Moe Syzslak's funk-dancing for self defence.
They could have had him beatbox for the full entertainment package:

Hopefully for Nani, the only flips he'll be doing in a Valencia shirt from now on are after he scores a goal.
