Academy : deux jeunes de la Pelé Academia en stage avec la réserve
Within the framework of the partnership with the Pelé Academia, two young Brazilian players are taking part in a training course with Gueïda Fofana's squad.

The two young Brazilians arrived on French soil on June 30 from Rio and had to be patient. But after ten days of quarantine, they were finally able to discover the Groupama Stadium and its training center. Gabriel Nascimento Peixoto Silva and João Felipe Santiago, players of the Resende club, have been selected to participate in a two-week training camp with the OL professional Reserves as part of the partnership with the Pelé Academia. 


The defender of the 2004 generation and the midfielder of the 2002 generation had their first training session a week ago with Gueïda Fofana and Jérémie Bréchet's group. They were even able to take part in the friendly matches of the Reserve side, which is preparing its return to competition and its new season in National 2. This very enriching adventure for the two Brazilians, and also for the players of the OL Academy, will end at the end of this week.
