How did you get into soccer?

I started playing soccer at an early age and I was soon spotted by the most popular local team to join their academy.

What do you like about the Wolves?

I had an opportunity in the past to coach against the Wolves and see them practicing. They always have good attitudes and you can tell they are having fun on the field.

Who is your favorite soccer player of all-time?

This is a tough question. I would say I have two favorite soccer players of all time: Rivaldo (my childhood nickname!) and Adebayor.

How many consecutive juggles can you do?

Maybe 20.

What is your favorite thing about soccer?

I believe soccer is more than a sport, it’s a lifestyle. Soccer is for anyone, it doesn’t matter how tall, small, young or old, the game can begin if you have a ball and/or a friend.

What is your favorite part of working with kids?

Coaching is a great way to share my knowledge with the kids. That gives me the opportunity to see the kids improving their soccer skills and to help them build their personal self-confidence.
