Academy Quickfire Questions: Bernardo Rosa


Each week, we'll be firing some of football's true 'need-to-know' questions towards promising products of the Academy of Football.

This week, it's the turn of 20-year-old midfielder Bernardo Rosa...

Quick Fact: Born in Rio, Rosa began playing football in his native Brazil with Vasco de Gama and CR Flamengo but, after moving to England as a teenager, started playing more as a winger.

A technically adept and versatile athlete, in the last two seasons, Rosa has played for the U23s in defensive midfield, attacking midfield, right-back, left-back and even, at various points in matches, up front!
