wasn’t where they thought they would wind up coming from the land of jogo bonito But a bunch of Brazilians travelled halfway across the world to land contracts in the Indian Super League after their teenaged dreams of setting Europe on fire faded then frayed to tatters Mihir Vasavda tells the story of footballers from the famous South American powerhouse camped currently in India who missed their chance to be extra-ordinary THE modest single-tiered bleachers of the Balewadi Sports Complex in Pune were a far cry from the giant sports amphitheatre in Rome that Jonatan Lucca once hoped he would grace As he strode out of the tunnel in FC Goa colours for a crucial away encounter against Pune City one wondered if Lucca’s mind drifted into the past thinking of the cruel twist of fate that landed him in this hilly western Indian city when he was destined for something bigger at the historic Italian capital It was a little more than a month after he turned 18 three years ago With a twinkle in his eye and an impish grin the Brazilian had posed for a dozen photographers at Stadio Olimpico in Rome Donning AS Roma’s famous red jersey he was paraded in front of 20000 curious fans wondering who this mystery signing was Roma’s Hungarian manager Zdenek Zeman promised flair which you associate with almost every Brazilian player But this boy wonder from Santa Maria held promise as he had shown while playing for the youth team of South American giants Internacional ‘Nouvou (new) Ronaldinho’ screamed one of Italy’s leading football websites on its homepage the following day comparing his technical skills to that of the Brazilian great Lucca was living his dream And with endless possibilities in front of him the midfielder prepared himself for a dizzying journey with Roma hoping to follow the paths of his more famous countrymen Or so he wished Share This Article Related Article Three years on he finds himself playing in front of a motley crowd in a fledgling league in distant India It’s a story gone awfully wrong And his isn’t the only one Including Lucca there are 17 Brazilian footballers in the Indian Super League (ISL) this season And almost each one of them has a tale to tell It may seem exotic to be a professional footballer in the land of sun samba and soccer But beyond the stories of jogo bonito orchestrated by Selecao superstars in Europe’s finest leagues are the journeymen who are forced to leave their backyards in Brazil to kick a ball thousands of miles away just to earn a living According to FIFA’s transfer statistics 689 players left the South American country to play abroad in 2014 – more than players from any other nation They were also the most transferred nationality Out of the 13090 transfers registered last year 1493 were Brazilians Taken at face value it may seem simple economics where supply exceeds demand resulting in the surplus being exported But talk to the players and they paint a grim picture of circumstances that force them to leave their families and venture out of their country “There are so many academies in Brazil which produce many many footballers So some awesome players are picked by big clubs But there are also many great players who do not get such opportunities” says Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos the player-manager of Delhi Dynamos The glitz and glamour that is generally associated with Brazilian football feels like a bad joke to those who have plodded their way through the crowded youth system and an inefficient domestic structure They are the vagabonds who are not wanted by Europe’s elite and are unable to obtain salaries playing league football at home “They pretend to pay We pretend to play” FORMER midfielder Vampeta a member of the 2002 World Cup winning squad could not have summarised Brazilian clubs’ financial situation better Most Brazilian players often remember the famous quote but few will say it They do not talk openly about the dire monetary troubles faced by the clubs back home as most are still under contract with them and are loaned out to the ISL clubs However according to a recent study by Britain’s Esquire magazine around 85 per cent of Brazil’s professional footballers earn less than 550 (approx Rs 55000) a month Some even play for food and just a fraction of them get a lucrative contract from a big club In contrast average pay in the I-League for foreigners is around Rs 2 lakh It’s a conservative estimate In the ISL it is nearly double of that Carlos who moved out of Brazil when he was 22 says Brazilian clubs’ inability to match the wages offered by not just European clubs but also the teams from non-traditional football countries is one of the key reasons players are tempted to play abroad “For example Real Madrid comes to a small local Brazilian club with $20 million and they take away their best talent For a club which is not so strong financially how can you say no” Carlos says Most clubs are in deep debts and with little money coming from TV rights and gate receipts the major source of income becomes the transfer fees by selling a player Surprisingly the average crowd attendances for a domestic match in the land of Pele Ronaldo and Ronaldinho are in hundreds Earlier this year only 375 people paid to watch Rio giants Flamengo beat Bonsucesso 2-0 in a state championship match The general indifference to the state of the domestic game means that few Brazilians care about the players leaving the country in droves to play abroad says Brazilian journalist Paulo Freitas who writes for renowned websites and newspapers across the world “Most Brazilians don’t really care much about this but the ones who do usually blame the situation on several factors — too many players foreign clubs offering bigger salaries than small Brazilian clubs and also the fact small Brazilian clubs often don’t play the whole year” Freitas says He adds: “As players have a short career and football is regarded by the players mainly as a job they usually take the opportunity to get good contracts if they can The ISL also becomes extra attractive as it pays well and it’s a short competition So even top division players like Elano feel interested as they can make more money playing there than they would playing in Brazil in the same amount of time At the same time they are still able to play most of the year in Brazil” But talk to the players and they say money is secondary Opportunity or the lack of it is the reason why they are forced to travel to obscure lands flying into a footballing culture blind “You have to be God’s chosen individual” REINALDO says as if he’s stating a matter of fact when asked about what it takes to make it big in Brazil The FC Goa striker is your quintessential journeyman In his 16-year career the 36-year-old has played for 17 clubs across eight countries and three continents including clubs like French giants PSG and Brazil’s So Paulo However he still remembers the struggle to get his first breakthrough “When I had a trial with Flamengo (in 1999) there were 80 players and eventually only me and two other players passed the trials Of course I had my qualities as a player but I believe at that moment you are selected by God” Reinaldo says getting philosophical Opportunities are few because of the chaotic organisation According to various reports there are 684 registered clubs in Brazil But most of them play less than 19 games a year And nearly half of the approximately 30000 registered players (30784 in 2013) do not even lace up their boots between May and December as there are no tournaments to take part in Teams on an average have roughly 50 players registered for a season meaning the competition for every place is intense Consequently many players are left without much game time and are left warming benches “Some people back home think we take our decisions for more money or things like that But those are not the reasons” says Lucca “Brazil pays well to its footballers Sometimes players look to other countries for opportunities A player always wants to play” So instead of their homeland where no one seems to want them the players move out Even if it means taking the road less travelled and becoming the missionaries of a footballing philosophy the world worships Gustavo Marmentini dos Santos is among them A product of Atletico Paranaense academy the Delhi Dynamos attacking midfielder came to India at the age of 20 after he could not muster a single senior team appearance last year “The main reason to come here was to get experience of playing abroad In Brazil the opportunities are very less I always wanted to play outside and I thought this was my chance of doing so” he says “Not a heartbreak Just life” LUCCA may not have reached the dizzying highs he would have once dreamt of But he is content just to be making a living out of what he loves the most After being signed by Roma for 700000 euros he could not break into the starting XI or make an appearance although he was named on the bench on multiple occasions He was loaned back to Brazilian side Atletico Paranaense before he signed for them permanently earlier this year The Brazilian top division side again loaned him out to a third tier team Guaratingueta where he made his senior team debut before he was sent to FC Goa again on loan It must have been frustrating but Lucca feels this is the ‘right time for him to show his football’ He talks as if he wants to prove a point To Roma to Paranaense and to all those who’ve put faith in him In a country where the difference between footballing haves and have nots (talent wise) is seemingly less it takes an extra-ordinary talent to rise through the ranks and make a name for himself It may seem that those who do not make it are gathering pieces of a broken dream But Dos Santos is realistic about the situation “Not everyone will make it no We all dream of Selecao the jersey and all that But it’s tough Very very tough It’s not a heartbreak It’s just life” he says smiling The smile never leaves their faces When they are on the field or talking off it It doesn’t matter if they’re playing in an obscure country and an even obscure league They’re happy just to be playing football The outsider the heartbreak kid and the nomad Vinicius Ferreira? download Indian Express App More Related
