Wesley Moraes Talks About His Extraordinary Upbringing
Aston Villa striker Wesley Moraes has been talking to Sky Sports about his extraordinary upbringing in Brazil. The player had two children by the time he was 16.
He also lost his own father at an early age, “When my father died, it was difficult because my mum was alone with me and my brothers but she worked and now today I do everything for her.
“When I finish training, I call my mum because she is everything. My mum did everything to help me play so every day when I come home, I call her.
"I had my first child when I was 14 years old. It was difficult because it was during this time that I started to try and play football professionally.
“I had to work in the day and then go to training in the evening. When I play, I have to think about my family, my kids, my mum, everybody.”
