I have always wanted to play in a big European club, says Joao Felipe

The last days of the Czech transfer window have brought us a very interesting move, which has its roots at CEE Cup. Brazilian Joao Felipe was amongst the best players of the CEE Cup 2019 and this was the main reason for the transfer to Slavia.”I have always wanted to play in a big European club. I like new challenges,” says 18-year-old wonderkid.

The decisive factor was probably the match against Slavia in which Joao scored two goals and provided one assist. Palmeiras won 5:2, reached the final and Slavia had to compete for the 3rd place. “I want to become a part of the club´s history, play good matches and hope that fans will love my football,” youngster reveals his goals.



He was at Palmeiras only for a few months when he moved there on loan from Ituano FC, a small club from the 4th division. After a few weeks, he was part of the team which traveled to Prague at CEE Cup. “It was a great tournament with tough opponents. We played some good matches and I really enjoyed it,” remembers young winger, who was a key member of the Palmeiras CEE Cup team.



And the first offer from a European club came very soon after the tournament. “I was negotiating only with Slavia and when they showed me the contract offer, I was very happy and wanted the move,” states Joao Felipe who is coming back to Prague after five weeks.”I like Prague, it is a very beautiful city,” says.
 
His move to Europe brings not only football challenges. One of the first tasks will be to improve his language skills, he wasn´t able to remember any Czech word after his arrival. “I will be learning Czech, but currently I'm having problems even with English,” admits.
