Brazil: the talent factory 2009 featuring Tottenham Hotspur target Sandro Ranieri, Souza, Boquita, Giuliano de Paula, Diego Renan, Rafael Tolói

See Brazil: the talent factory 2010 here    2011     2012     2008

With the season is moving towards the final stages, I thought it was high time I produced a follow up to last year’s Brazil: the talent factory post. Once again, there has been an abundance of exciting new players that have caught the eye in their first season in Série A.

Of the players I picked out last year; Palmeiras’ Keirrison was bought by Barcelona and has been loaned out to Benfica. Portuguesa’s Diogo was signed by Olympiacos. Ex Cruzeiro forward, Guilherme, moved to Dynamo Kiev and was then loaned to CSKA Moscow. The youngsters that did notfare as well are Maikon Leite, whose career has been hit by serious injuries at Santos, and Anderson Pico who has temporarily swapped Grêmio for second division Figueirense.

First, a word about some of the obvious omissions from this year’s list. Douglas Costa is not here because it’s his second year as a pro (and anyway, he still hasn’t done a thing for Grêmio). Corinthians Dodô, who may or not be joining Manchester United in 2010, has not even made a single appearance for the Parque São Jorge club.

So, to 2009 and the players I’ve gone for. Here’s their info but you can watch them in action in the video.

    Bravo, Sir! I’ll be interested to see which of these names get hyped by the taboids, Tribalfootball, Goal, etc, and linked with European giants by the end of next month…and which teams stump up ten million or so without too much scouting on the back of said hype!

    Jon, I watched the Brazil U17 vs Japan U17 and Mexico U17 matches. They beat Japan 3-2 luckily and lost to Mexico 1-2 deservedly. The team is just a joke with a group of joker with no teamworks at all. Phillipe Coutinho and Neymar are the biggest overrated player of the tournament. So disappointed with them.

    Sandro, Giuliano and Rafael Toloi look like very good players. Haven’t seen too much of the others, although is that the same Renan with the curly hair who played for Brazil U-20s?

    No, Jonathan. Diego Renan is a left-back and plays for Cruzeiro

    I just read that Vasco de Gama are negotiating with Manchester United and Chelsea over Alex Texeiera. I haven’t heard much about him at all. Any comments anybody?

      Ivor
      nothing here in Brazil about Teixeira and Man Utd or Chelsea – here the player is certainly NOT “regarded as the next big thing to emerge from Brazil” as the Telegraph says and i think he’s regarded as an average footballer –
