Fleetwood Town have welcomed a young player from STK Fluminense Samorin as both clubs continue their working relationship.
Christian has joined Fleetwood Town’s development squad for a week from and has trained also with the club’s first team, ahead of the club’s final game of the season against Walsall.
Short-term player exchange between STK Fluminense Samorin and Fleetwood Town is a first step in a potential cooperation between both clubs.
STK’s Sports Director Marco Manso, added: “Although the season has not finished yet and our team is still playing competitive matches, when the opportunity for Christian appeared, we came to conclusion that this experience would be extremely valuable for the player’s development.
“Fleetwood Town FC is an established club with developed infrastructure within probably the most-progressed football culture in the world, which can open Christian’s horizons. Furthermore, we think the player can improve his language skills, which can help in his personal life as well.”
Christian, said on his week with the Cod Army: “Fleetwood Town FC has offered me great training conditions, and the facilities here are amazing.
“At first I was finding myself but as I have spent few months in Europe already, it was a bit easier. It is an interesting experience for me and I hope that both myself and STK will benefit from it in the future.”
Chief Executive, Steve Curwood said on the partnership: “We have always been very inquisitive about other clubs around the world who do things a little differently, and the Šamorín partnership with Brazilian giants Fluminense is certainly one in that bracket.
“Opportunities to support one another and share ideas across borders can benefit everyone and we were delighted to welcome Christian to the club this week from Samorin to experience our Academy coaching structure.
“I am positive there will be other opportunities to support the development needs of both clubs and their young players."
