Mum is the only family member we could get a hold of. She looks content with what her boy has achieved. However, she'd love to see him represent their country one day.

Daddy versatile reads bedtime stories to his kid at home. That's very sweet of him. Is there too much brown in the decor of his house? We're afraid so.

Mendes Car - What does he drive?

Picture of his    car

He drives vehicles on the road, but that's limited to his time in Lille. He has now taken to a totally different mode of transport after he's moved to Lyon.

Picture of his    car

He rafts and only rafts after his move. It is a fun way to travel, but we can't understand the logic behind it.

He switches to driving on the road only when his pet dog Cloe warrants. She's a diva and doesn't like getting wet.

Player Bio

When you primarily play as a defensive midfielder, but contribute towards 16% of all the goals scored in the league for your club, in the league, midway through a season, it reveals something about the capacity and versatility of you as a player. That's why when Juninho, the Lyon legend, was asked to describe this midfielder- he termed him 'The Versatile.' His interceptions and tackles are well-known aspects of his game. But only a few know that he's very dribbler of the ball, and that he's got a potent drive that lets him take those long shots from outside the area. He has enormous stamina that lets him run the whole length of the pitch tirelessly. This workhorse is also a very good passer of the ball. The samba man signed with Les Gones in the beginning of the 2019 season from Lille OSC, another Ligue 1 outfit. Prior to his Les Dogues adventure, he was playing with São Paulo in Brazil. Details about his youth career is not readily accessible. But from what we know, he used to play with Goiás Esporte Clube, who also gave him his senior debut. This player's twenty-seven years of age, but his case is such that he hasn't represented his country to date in international football. The pool of talent in Brazil is so massive that we can't be sure of if he'll ever get to don the legendary green and yellow kit.
