Leo Mineiro comments:

  • “I was offered the number 9 shirt, but when I heard the number 33 was available, I chose that because it is a lucky number for me. I think this opportunity represents the biggest opportunity of my career, but I feel it also represents my last chance to impress abroad. I feel that this is a turning point in my life, and I hope to contribute to the team as much as possible.”

Welcome Leo!!
