The Brazilian-born Belgium youth has that he is settled in well, thanks particular to his countrymen in the first team squad.
“It’s fantastic. I can definitely say that my dream has come true,” he told Voetbal International. “Everything at this club exudes professionalism. I had to get used to the club suit that we have to wear. Especially the tie. I’m here 24 hours a day with football. At school we are as players of Manchester United in a separate class and we get lots of individual attention. Every day we eat at the club with all players, including those of the first team. I have been very well received, especially by the other Brazilian boys from the senior squad, the twins Fabio and Rafael, and Anderson.”
He is an attacking midfielder who likes to score goals and turned down offers from other English clubs to be at United.
