Leonor Pinhão also writes books and helps to “edit” others
Leonor Pinhão wrote the book “Tudo Sobre Futebol” and “Rosa Mota Memória de Uma Carreira” and helped to “edit” the book “Eu, Carolina”, by Carolina Salgado. “Edit” as it says because Sol newspaper revealed that seven more chapters and 58 pages were added compared to the original version. The following chapters were added: Euro 2004 and hatred of Scolari (12), “Apito Dourado” (13), when Pinto da Costa run away to Spain (14), arrest and hearing at the Apito Dourado (15), aggression against Ricardo Bexiga 16), deterioration of Pinto da Costa’s confidence and accusations to the doctor Fernando Póvoas, accused of drugging (17) and separation of the President of FC Porto (18).
So, of course, Leonor did not help solely in editing the book. The news of Sol Newspaper can be read here.

This book reopened the process “Apito Dourado”.
For all the hatred that Leonor Pinhão has to F.C. Porto, having the courage to “edit” a book by someone else, she is the perfect “cartilheira” for Benfica.
