Vieira’s secret nickname is TV villain

Nuno Tavares has revealed new Arsenal star Fabio Vieira’s TV-inspired nickname.

The Gunners announced the £34million signing of Vieira from Porto yesterday.

Vieira, 22, knows Tavares through Portugal Under-21 duty, with the duo having represented their country’s youth sides for years.

Now that they have been united at club level, the Arsenal left-back couldn’t wait to welcome his pal to the club.

In doing so on Instagram, Tavares revealed that he nicknames his pal after a classic Prison Break criminal.

After his transfer was announced, Vieira wrote on Instagram: “I’m very happy to sign with this amazing club.

“We’ll do great things together. I look forward to seeing you all this season.”

Tavares, 22, commented: “Red looks great.” He then added: “Welcome T-Bag.”
