The Brazilian, who has signed 5 seasons, has stood out as a second striker, with fast concepts, passing and dribbling, far faraway from the profile that the membership was in search of as an alternative choice to Luis Suárez
The Athletic de Madrid has signed for 5 seasons Matheus Cunha, a second Brazilian striker very totally different from the strikers he had been excited about. His nice love is futsal. “I like even more than outdoor football,” he went on to say in an interview for the Bundesliga. He’s a participant with fast concepts, with a move or a dribbling all the time at hand, whether or not ranging from the left, behind the striker or as a false 9. It is not 9 like Luis Suarez. Neither how Rafa mir or Dusan Vlahovic, the opposite options that Atlético de Madrid had thought of. Though he has simply gained the Olympic gold with Brazil enjoying on the high. Cunha is a 9 it isn’t 9.

Cunha left house at age 14 to coach within the decrease classes of Coritiba, on the opposite aspect of the nation (which within the case of Brazil entails 3,000 kilometers). And it was with this crew that FC Sion found him in 2017. After standing out within the Dallas Cup, a youth match in america, he made the leap to Europe with the Swiss membership.
In his solely season at FC Sion he scored 10 objectives and eight assists, a efficiency that caught the eye of RB Leipzig.

Within the Bundesliga they’ve in contrast it to Roberto Firmino for his skill to go right down to extra backward positions and convey the sport up. A kind of strikers the place the purpose depend does not inform the entire story. It isn’t the 9 that Atlético gave the impression to be in search of, however one other participant to unblock the ultimate meters.
