Joao Mendes , the son of former Barcelona and Brazil star Ronaldinho, has joined the training camp of the Barcelona U19s.
Mendes, who played for Brazilian club Cruzeiro as a 14-year-old, recently released the club and joined Barcelona. Mendes is an avant-garde on the court. Unlike his father Ronaldinho, he is taller. He is only 18 years old and has a height of 180cm. Now Mendes’ business is managed by his uncle Roberto Assis Moreira.
Ronaldinho has always been one of Barcelona’s great players, arguably on par with Messi. Ronaldinho participated in 207 games and scored 94 goals. He not only won the World Cup with the national team, but also won the Golden Globe Award and South American Footballer of the Year.
However, compared with his father, Mendes’ current performance is not very bright, and he has not yet been selected for the Brazilian national team. During his time at the Cruzeiro club, Mendes has been insisting on training and growing. Now he is only 17 years old and has just joined Barcelona, which means he still has a long way to go. Starting from the Barcelona youth team, Mendes will face a series of tough competition and growth. As long as you are willing to work hard, I believe there will always be a day that surprises people.
Barcelona’s youth training camp can be said to be world-famous, and many stars have emerged from it, such as Garvey, Ansu Fati and Alexandro and so on.
