I was lucky to experience football in different ways.
As a kid who begins to engage in sports with a wide imagination.
As a football professional whose wishes come true, whose dreams become reality.
I have been watching football from the stands for years and from a very important, often crucial, parental aspect.
I decided to re-experience football in the most genuine way – in the company of children.
From day to day, during the camp activities, my team and I will ask them to dream and awaken their imagination. We will try to be supportive in order to make their dreams come true.
My memories are dominated by the images from my earliest football age. For this reason, I want the DEKI 5 camp to be one of the more beautiful experiences in the childhood of the kids who I look forward to meeting. I will do my best to make them leave the camp, smiling and full of unforgettable impressions.
I admit, I had cold feet before the beginning of the first season of the Camp. It was like that until the first contact with children. The emotion I’ve got from them, the synergy felt among all the participants of the Camp, that is one of my most important victories in both football and life. I am happy we set the bar so high. The old rule of sport says that it is easier to win the title than to defend it. That is why an enormous challenge is in front of us, to assert ourselves from year to year and always be at least a little better.
