Minister of Culture Manuel Monteiro Veiga of Cape Verde

Veiga has spent much of his career in his home land with S.
Veiga was desperate to play in England and he trained with Walsall and Bury, and was apparently attracting a lot of interest from league clubs.
In more recent times Veiga had a falling out with the management of Cape Verde and was left out of the squad for the CAN 2008 qualifying match against Algeria on March 24, 2007 in favour of Ernesto Soares.
Veiga was appointed Prime Minister in a transitional administration.
