Giovanni Relishing Ajax Brazilian Connection
Ajax’s Brazilian teenager Giovanni says that the number of Brazilians already at the Amsterdam club was a big factor in his decision to join.
The Dutch giants already boast David Neres, Danilo and Anthony and that helped them to win the signature of the 18-year old from Santos.
“That certainly makes things easier for me. It did influence my decision to choose Ajax,” Giovanni told Ajax’s official website.
“I think I can learn a lot from David. I knew him by name and knew he was a really good player, but I met him in the Netherlands for the first time.
“David has become a friend in a short time," continues Giovanni. "I think he's very funny and we have the same sense of humour.
“I've been with him almost all the time since I've been in the Netherlands. I go to his house regularly and then we play a Brazilian card game together.
“I know Danilo too, because he also played at Santos. I bumped into him in a locker room at De Toekomst sporting complex.
“I haven't met Antony yet, but he's a very good player. I hope the four of us can get a lot of samba in Amsterdam."
