Former footballer of Brazil builds school for training of future stars

Former footballer of Brazil builds school for training of future stars

A handshake with soccer professionals enables the children to hop and kick more lively on the field of the training school.

Pedro Vicencote, former player of the national team in 1982 World Cup, built the facility in the western city of Itaguai in the Rio de Janeiro State 10 years ago to sustain his dream about soccer.

“There are six football fields, with 20 rooms, pool, accommodation for food, medical department, as well as fitness and bodybuilding rooms. Well, it is really complete.”

As with any other sport, the sooner you start, the greater the possibility of evolution and athletic enhancement.

This is why Vicencote establishes the campus to enroll young talents, and even those from China, as part of a larger future plan.

“The vision of China today for football is really audacious. I think one day it will have to reverse the current way, develop a bit more Chinese athletes, so that they can continue these millionaire signings that have been done.”

Just like Vicencote the strategic planner, the parents sitting outside the field also reserve an ambition for the saplings to earn their stardom while growing up in a highly competitive market.
