Thiago dos Santos Silva

18 years, EC Vitória

For Thiago, Dankler’s most talented teammate in Vitória’s youth squad, life has never been a breeze. His uncle, once a mighty drug lord and now reformed as a preacher, is extremely controlling of his nephew. Thiago’s story represents the downward spiral of so many young talents, being caught up between the interests of agents, scouts and clubs, as well as having to deal with his girlfriend’s miscarriage of twins. Dropping out even before his light was ever able to properly shine, the young striker tries to grasp his last little chance by joining a fourth division team. Not even earning minimum salary, he hopes that someday he will wear the jersey of his dream club: FC Freiburg in Germany.
