A talent a day, Igor Felisberto: the Brazilian winger that San Paolo is betting on

Igor Felisberto it is yet another Brazilian gem capable of attracting the attention of the big Europeans. Sao Paulo included him in the list of players called up for the Libertadores and now he almost always trains with the first team. At seventeen in March, he is a key player in the Paulista club’s Under 20 team and there have long been observers from across Europe in the stands following him match after match. A modern player, he is the classic ‘Brazilian-style’ full-back for a coach who loves to set up the game from deep, like De Zerbi, like Thiago Motta, and who also has many admirers in Serie A.

Very quick in tight ends, a tightrope walker with the ball at his feet, he is a full-back who loves dribbling and also entering the pitch to set up the play. Great sense of anticipation and positioning, in defensive diagonals he is a guarantee for his rearguard. He loves to take a lot of risks in one-on-one situations, even in his own half, but thanks to a basic attacking midfield technique, most of the time he succeeds. Despite his slim physique, thanks to his low center of gravity he often manages to win physical battles one-on-one.
