New B1 player, Leo!

The B1 Family has grown once again, this time with the addition of Leo Itsitsar from Brussels, Belgium, and joins the annual program to continue his training until the end of the season.

His blistering pace, dribbling skills, and great strength to fend off opponents complement his attacking prowess and hard-working mentality as a natural winger. As such, he is a constant goal-threat to the opposition that is very difficult to contain.

Leo is going on four years living in Barcelona, having played for Sant Cugat FC in División de Honor Cadete – the highest possible level of under-15 football in the country – as well as Cerdanyola FC in the Liga Preferente Juvenil ahead of joining his current team Mollet in the same division.

Leo is a player with international experience and has adapted very quickly to the group and is already one of the B1 Players.

“I feel I have settled in rather quickly. I feel quite comfortable with everyone around me which makes life much easier and having lived in Barcelona for a long time now definitely helps.

The Belgian winger shall play an instrumental role in our MIC 2020 team in April. He is also further growing our diversity by adding another nationality to our Academy.

“I am here to play my best, learn as much as possible and fulfill my potential as a player!”

We are very excited for the months ahead and look forward to working together!
