Former Cruzeiro star Kerlon Moura Souza, better known as Kerlon “Foquinha”, came to our training center in Milford to visit with DreamTeam players last Sunday.
During his visit, Foquinha took time out to observe two sessions of training, speak with players and sign autographs. He proceeded to do a short demonstration for the players that included the trademark “seal juggling” by which he got his nickname.
A family friend of DreamTeam coach Tiganà, “Foquinha” left Cruzeiro in 2008 to join InterMilan and Chievo in the Italian Serie A and then continued on to the famed AFC Ajax of Amsterdam. He also made several appearances with both the U17 and U20 squads of Brasil.
