Luiz has played professionally in Brazil, Latvia and Malta and the next step in his football career pathway is Down Under to play in the NSW National Premier League.
The Brazilian footballer who has a wealth of experience at only 25, has been training and playing locally in Brazil for the past 2 months and is ready to hit the floor running and begin his Australian chapter with immediate effect. Scouted from the echelons of Maltese Football by IFM Director Andy, who was playing with Luiz before he moved up to a division one team where his ability was a stand-out compared to the players around him.
”From the very first game we played together to the final game in Malta, Luiz’s technical ability, composure and reading of the game was second-to-none”,- said Andy Drewery. ”He was ice-cool on the ball, even when under pressure, and kept the game alive. He reminds me a bit of the Brazilian – Diego, with his style of play, vision and adaptability on the pitch. We are expecting some big things from Luiz in Australia, where he will be firmly in the shop window for the bigger clubs within Australian Football and then who knows where the next step will be from there”.
The team at IFM wish Luiz a safe journey to Sydney and a successful start to his season.
