Jordi Pascual, an Argentinean striker and winner of Fieldoo‘s Minguella Challenge, signed a contract with Spanish 2nd division club after successfully passing the trials earlier this month.
Sometimes, to achieve your dreams, you can take different roads. Jordi Pascual knows this very well. This young Argentinean striker with Spanish passport became a professional player in an European league not only because of his talent, but also because of participating and winning the Minguella Challenge. After having a 1-week-trial earlier this month, Jordi eventually signed a contract with Girona FC, Spanish club of Liga Adelante (2nd division)!
Jordi, who also used to play in legendary Boca Juniors‘ youth teams, was always dreaming of becoming a professional player in Europe. It was a big step but he was always planning to achieve it. “We’d been fighting for a chance for Jordi to go abroad”, remembered his father.
Minguella: Jordi will have our full support
Jordi made his dream a reality by taking part in and winning the Minguella Challenge on Fieldoo - a football network of players and agents (it features over 100.000 users worldwide). He was chosen from amongst more than 5.000 applied footballers from all over the world. Furthermore, from now on Jordi is represented by the agency of famous agent Josep Maria Minguella, the person who took Lionel Messi to FC Barcelona and represented players like Maradona, Romario, Rivaldo and Guardiola. “I’m happy that Minguella Challenge ended with success. Jordi will have our full support. From now on it’s all up to him”, said Minguella Jr., who runs the agency Business Football España.
“I’m happy that the club, Minguella and his team trusted in me”, said Jordi after participating in the trials and signing a contract. “Now I have to give my best in training and matches and keep following my dreams, which are to never stop growing. I’m also really grateful to Fieldoo.com which helped me making my dreams possible. I hope Fieldoo will be helpful to many other players out there who have no other possibilities to show their football skills.”
Pascual: I don’t expect anything else from football, it’s up to me
Minguella is not the only one who has put his faith in Jordi. Oriol Alsina, Sports Director of Girona FC, thinks that the Argentinean striker is “a player with a great future and we are sure he will do well”. But anyway, Jordi, a new member of Girona, knows that it’s his turn to justify that confidence. “I don’t expect anything else from football, I’m the one who has to do well”, he said. He knows that this isn’t the end of his dreams. It’s only the beginning.
The other Minguella Challenge winner, Denis Kramar (Slovenia), also left good impressions on the trials, however club decided not to sign him at the moment. Anyway, he was excited with the given chance and the new experience from Spain.
