Former lions striker congratulated the leonine structure for its ability to “train players”

Mário Jardel was right to the old saying and, in fact, the good son the house returned, in this case to the Sporting Academy. The former Brazilian striker of the lions was received in Alcochete by former team-mate Nélson Pereira, current director of team B and under-23, and took the opportunity to “kill homesickness” for the club he represented between 2001 and 2003.

“I want to thank Nélson Pereira and the entire management for inviting me to come and miss him. The legacy remains and I am very grateful to Sporting. Whenever I come to Lisbon, I pay a visit, to top it off with all the affection of those who participated in my history. and that they are here. It is very gratifying to remember good things “, underlined Jardel, now 47 years old, leaving wide praise for the work done by the people in charge of Leon. “We have examples that show that the basic categories are fundamental to do what Sporting has done best, which was to train Luís Figo, Cristiano Ronaldo or Ricardo Quaresma. The good structure that Sporting has to train players is undeniable. I want to congratulate everyone who works here daily to train the athletes “, concluded ‘Super Mário’.

It should be noted that, in addition to Jardel, Paíto was also present at the Cristiano Ronaldo Academy, in a curious coincidence that is not related to the reason that led to Jardel’s visit. The former Brazilian striker and former Mozambican side were teammates between 2001 and 2003.
