Athletic reporter Jack Lang wrote an article to introduce fans to some short stories of the growth of Manchester United’s new aid Teles, and let us know what kind of player he is.
Tres made his debut in Brazil's Juventus. In 2012, at the age of 19, he moved to Gremio. A year later, Telles ushered in his first show. The opponent was Quito University. The first time Telles did not have stage fright, helped the team beat the opponent 1-0 in 90 minutes and equalized the total score. In the penalty shootout, he unexpectedly took the initiative to ask Ying to stand on the penalty spot, and made a steady penalty in the sixth round to help Gremio eliminate his opponent in the penalty shootout.
特雷斯（Tres）在巴西尤文图斯（Juventus）出道。 2012年，他19岁，移居到Gremio。一年后，泰勒斯（Telles）迎来了他的第一场演出。对手是基多大学。 Telles第一次没有表现出恐惧感，帮助球队在90分钟内以1-0击败对手并扳平了总比分。在点球大战中，他出人意料地主动要求应颖站在点球线上，并在第六轮稳步点球，以帮助Gremio在点球大战中淘汰对手。
Although the position on the field is left-back, Telis is the first penalty shooter in Porto. He has taken 20 penalties in his career and scored 16 times with an 80% success rate. "It's part of his personality," recalls Da Rosa, Telles' enlightenment coach. "He didn't feel pressured. Every game was the same for him. He was very strong psychologically."
Tres’ offensive ability left a deep impression on Rosa: “His skills are excellent and he has a high ball quotient. He has played many positions: full-back, central-back, midfielder, midfielder, winger. He is often on the court. Get inspired, use set balls to solve problems, or pass the ball precisely into the penalty area for teammates to score."
After landing in Europe, Telis gradually changed his style and became more stable on the defensive end. After a period of adaptation, Teles gradually became the best left-back in Portugal.
However, in the early days, Tell's career was not smooth sailing. Rosa recalled: "He encountered some problems with his physical strength. At that time, he was very weak. At the age of 9 he was about the same size as a 7-year-old kid. Because of his body shape, he was often left alone. Angry, but he is not the kind of kid who can only vent his anger. He will lower his posture and prove that he is worthy of his position in the team. This is very mature. He always faces challenges with a smile. His physical weakness makes him have to We must do our best in spirit and technology."
There is a conspicuous scar above Teles' ear, which is a souvenir that he himself called the "Trial of Fire". In the match against Brazil International, Teles was seriously injured, his nose kept bleeding, and even a big dent could be seen on his forehead. Telis had to undergo skull surgery, and doctors fixed his skull with metal plates and screws to help the wound heal. He took a truce for 3 months, but he never shy away from this wound: "I am not ashamed of it, this is a symbol of my career." After returning, Tres defeated former Gunners guard Andre- Santos, became the team's main left back.
Outside the court, Tellis is very low-key. When there is no game, he likes to stay at home instead of going out. In Brazil, he received a two-year degree in physical education from a local university.
"He is our exhaust valve. He has a strong presence when attacking." Former teammate Bressan said.
"He is fierce, he has this desire, it is this spirit and his technical ability that made him into the first team, and let other clubs notice him." Former Gremio director Chavarre Jr. commented.
Regarding Teles’ technique, Pedro Cunha, an editor of the Portuguese football website MaisFutebol, commented: “His offensive ability is extremely strong. In addition to scoring goals, his biggest advantage is to cross. It's not just a'cross', it's simply hitting the ball directly on his teammates. He can always create scoring opportunities for forwards. In addition, he often scores double-digit goals in a single season. I have followed Porto for 40 years and he is the club The best left back in team history, his departure left a huge hole."
Portugal international Andre has been teammates with Tres for two years. His evaluation is this: "For a good forward, Tres's cross is worth half a goal."
Many people will ask: If Teles is really so good, why did he land in the five major leagues to join the giants at the age of 28? In fact, in the past few years, the rich clubs have been interested in him. Paris was close to signing him. Chelsea, Inter Milan, Juventus and other rich clubs are also interested in him. The name of Manchester United is not only associated with Teles this year. The failure to make the trip was due to Porto’s unwillingness to let go of the core members of the formation, and on the other hand that his liquidated damages of 40 million euros were slightly high.
As a typical Brazilian player (referring to Lotte's character), Telis should be able to get along with his new teammates and coaches quickly. He is loved by fans in Porto and has a good relationship with his teammates. When the club won the championship, Telles, who held the cup, shed tears. This scene also moved many people. At the wedding, Tres also invited the enlightenment coach Rosa. At the beginning of this year, the Juventus youth training department encountered difficulties due to the epidemic, and Teles helped them solve their economic problems. "We once wanted to return the money to him, but Teles was determined not to." Rosa said moved.
Such a personality and emotional intelligence should help Telles quickly integrate into the Manchester United family.
