It was necessary to fetch the ball from the neighboring house. It was only on the second attempt that Kelvin managed to blow it up and discover that he would be a girl’s father. The striker remembers the story with good humor.
– It ended up happening that the woman who made the ball stuck a lot. It was a Styrofoam ball, just to fit, to kick, pop and smoke to find out the sex of the baby. But it stuck, ended up sticking a lot. I kicked hard, the ball didn’t break and it was there at the neighbor – he remembers.
The episode took place in September 2020, but it surfaced when Kelvin was announced by Vila Nova. Supporters relived the story on social media, and the 27-year-old striker commented on his official appearance at the new club. He arrives at Tigre with a productivity contract and, despite not having had a good spell at Botafogo, he believes he can turn the tide this year playing in Goiânia.
– I’m strong, I can and I know I can. I have already scored a title goal, I have assisted and won titles. I am still very young and I can help other teams.
