Brandon Fernandes on Leicester City Trials


A press Release by ASD Cape Town

ASD Cape Town can today confirm that Indian U19 creative Midfielder, Brandon Fernandes, has been invited by Leicester City Football Club on a 2 week trial.

Fernandes, who attracted global interest when he joined Reading FC on a trial midway through October, begins his 2 weeks in Leicester tomorrow where he will train with the Foxes development squad.

ASD Director, Mike Steptoe said:

"Brandon had a great time at Reading and was made extremely welcome by the club. He trained and played with the development squad and reports back have been very encouraging. He played in one game 'behind closed doors' and managed two assists as his side scored 3 goals. We understand that Reading are interested in Brandon and will be making a decision in the next few days. In the meantime Brandon is currently the guest of Leicester City, our home town club".

Leicester has a huge Indian population, and Fernandes was delighted to be introduced to the Melton Road area of the city earlier today. He described it as a 'mini-India', and enjoyed conversing with locals in his mother tongue of Hindi. He even paid a visit to a barbershop a friend from Goa recommended!

Fernandes said:

"From what I hear, Leicester City are a great club and they focus on development. They have been really welcoming and I already feel at home. The development squad are away tomorrow, but from Tuesday onwards, I'm really looking forward to focusing on my football"
