'The message that we never thought we would share: Our dear Alfredo Quintana left us today. You will always be remembered as one of our own. A real dragon. Rest in eternal peace, Quintana!' the Porto club highlighted when announcing the news.

Quintana was a member of the Portuguese team since 2014, after participating with the Cuban team in the Pan-American Games and the 2009 World Championships.
