This 43y midfielder – Leo Mello – refuses to hang up his boots. Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro with a huge passion, commitment and desire for the game, Leo has been playing this wonderful game of soccer for over 3 decades having the privilege of playing for multiple professional teams. His favourite position was left fullback where he played for many years in his youth, helping mould him into a fast and experienced sportsman
After moving to Australia in 2007, Leo decided to take a risk and play in a more forward position. The risk paid off. 5 incredible years of success followed playing for a local club – AC Carina which evolved him into a much more technical player
Unfortunately after a 5 year break due to serious injury and family matters, Leo rediscovered his passion for football after coming across this great club called Braza FC.
Now his main focus is to stay fit and do whatever he can to help Braza FC to achieve their goals on and off the field
