“This signature in my training club represents a lot. It’s a pride for me to have been there since the U9 category. I’m really enthusiastic even though this signature is just one step. Now it is up to me to work hard to be able to join the pro group. Last season was special to me because I had an injury that kept me off the pitch for a good while. I knew how to take my pain patience. Now I can’t wait to get back on the pitch and prove that I deserve what’s happening to me today, “the young player said on his club’s official website.
