20/Twenty with Heurelho Gomes

A quick chat about the early days and influences of our current squad. This month: HEURELHO GOMES.

twenty-twenty-1-novemberWhat was your favourite subject at school?
All sports - I was the school long jump champion. I lived in a village of just 200 people and the local school was two minutes walk from my home.

Do you recall your first day there?
I remember that I was seven but I can’t recall much else apart from the fact that, due to it being such a remote area, there were just seven other kids in my class!

Hobbies as a child?
None, any spare time I had was spent working on the farm; there was always something to do. In fact, I slept outdoors a lot as a child because I was working all hours and would just sit down and fall asleep in the field!

Colours of first youth club played for?
Democrata Sete Lagoas. I was a striker back then and we wore blue shirts and white shorts. I just happened to play in goal in a beach match one day and it took off from there.
