The Brazilian left back, was born on the 3rd of March 1995 in Rio de Janeiro but was raised in Petrópolis. He is a versatile player who finds himself comfortable in the midfield positions. As a child, he spent many years being shaped, trained and moulded by clubs in Serrano. He had the talent and privilege as a child to be trained by one of the most famous Brazilian clubs, FC Fluminense youth academy.
Magdiel spent 10 years at Fluminense learning how to play the sport physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. In these ten years the Brazilian turned into a fierce left back who has the speed and skill to make opposition defenders fear him when he comes running down the field and has the defensive skills and knowledge to keep strikers and wingers at bay.
Duque de Caxias Futebol Clube approached Magdiel after his ten years at FC Fluminense and offered him a deal at the club. In 2016 he played for Duque de Caxias, however, in 2017 decided to return back home and play for Serrano FC and has played there until today.
We created an interview with him in hopes of showing our readers who Magdiel is and what his dreams and achievements are.
