We are pleased to announce that 23 year old Brazilian Marcal has appointed Full Contact Football Agency as his worldwide agents.
Fernando Marcal de Oliveira (better known as Marcal) was first spotted by Full Contact’s Adonias Pereira playing for Gremio in the south of Brazil. Predominantly a left back, he now plays for Madeiran based side Nacional in the top flight in Portugal after an initial spell at Portuguese second division club Torreense, and is winning regular plaudits whilst competing against top sides such as Porto, Benfica and Sporting Lisbon. Marcal harbours ambitions to play at the highest level in Europe and to win international recognition for Brazil.
Lee Payne commented “I was made aware of Marcal by now colleague Adonias a few years ago, and in mid November I travelled out to Madeira to watch him play against Porto. I was astounded by how the raw talent I had seen a few years ago in Brazil had now developed in to an extremely accomplished full back. On the night in question the Porto winger was a supreme player but Marcal’s defensive quality was outstanding. I am honoured that he has chosen Full Contact to look after his interests going forwards. I have no doubt that Marcal has what it takes to succeed at the highest level in Europe, whether that ultimately be in the UK, Spain, Germany or elsewhere. For now he is playing at a very good standard in the Portuguese first division, but I am quite sure he can go a lot further in due couse. We are really excited and look forward to working with Marcal.”
