Former Home United’s legend, Peres de Oliveira (photo: extreme left) expressed his interests in returning to Singapore but this time round, he is looking at contributing to the local football scene as a coach.
The 2013 S.League Player of the Year Award winner is currently based in Vitoria, Brazil where he is still actively involved in the football scene as a football agent. Apart from managing footballers under his care, the fit-looking 41yrs old Brazilian, who keeps himself in shape by participating in football tournaments regularly, also does youth football coaching at some public schools.
“I have been in Singapore for a long time and during my stay in Singapore, I have learnt a lot. I understand how the football culture and S.League work. Regardless I am back with a football academy or with any S.League club, I believe my experience and knowledge will be useful in nurturing the next generation,” said Peres.
“In fact all these years, I have always been following the progress of Singapore’s football even though I am back in Brazil. I know that S.League has not been doing well in recent years. I hope I can be back and contribute something to Singapore’s football,” Peres added.
