Athletic information


Alessandro started playing soccer at a young age at his local club. After a few years he regularly played an age group up at the highest team at the club. At the age of 14 he transferred to Vv de Meern to play for the U-15 team that played at the 3rd highest division in the Netherlands (2de divisie). At this point he transitioned from a wingback to a centre back and he worked his way up to become a crucial player and captain for a period.


The next year he played for the 1st under-17 team (3de divisie) where he was used mostly as a midfielder (number 6) and regular captain of the team. In his second year in the first U-17 team he transitioned midway of the season to a number 10 and attacking winger position, ending the season with 12 goals and 5 assists. In this period he was also selected to play for the KNVB regional West  U-17 team and was also asked to play a some games for the first U-19 team (4de divisie) of his own club.In the season 2018-2019 he played for the first U-19 team and was a major contributor to the promotion to the 4th highest division (3de divisie). He also made his debut and played regularly for the first men’s team of Vv de Meern (1ste Klasse). Last season, in order to stay eligible he didn’t compete in organized competition but did practice with the first mens team. This season he will again compete for the first men's team.


Alessandro is a strong, fast and explosive player who can play at multiple positions but his favorite on the Left wing. With a strong right foot he likes to cut in side for the shot but can also put in a good cross. He has a good overview of the game that results into great passes and attacking runs. Beside attacking he is also defensive driven to keep the pressure high for the opponents defensive. He is a leader and a real team player who always gives a hundred percent.
