Boca Juniors is a different world

“I am a graduate of Boca Juniors academy, I spent many years in this club, playing for youth and U21 teams. This is a different world, you will not see such an approach to football anywhere else, emotions are difficult to describe. The elite Argentina division is a high-level tournament with many excellent teams. There you should give 100 percent at each training. You have all conditions to show progress”.

Foreign experience

“I got an offer to move to FC Belshina – a new country, a new team, a new championship I had no idea about before moving there. It was an excellent experience, my first matches as a professional footballer playing in the premier league. I played together with strong players and against qualified opponents”.

Invitation to national team is a great honor
