UD Las Palmas player Claudio Mendes opted for Media Base Sports agency to advise him on the day-to-day of his sports career and has become the last great signing of MBSFamily in 2020.
Claudio Mendes Vicente (Arrecife, December 8, 2000) is a forward who can play in any position on the offensive front of the team, but where he plays the most games is on the left-winger. Starting from the wing and with spaces, he is a very difficult player to stop. 'Clau', as he is known, is a fast player, with a great 1vs1 and a lot of confidence in himself.
The 20/21 season is being his second year at UD Las Palmas, where he arrived from CD Marítimo. The Lanzarote player signed for UD Las Palmas C, but it did not take long to show his excellent qualities and in a few months he made the leap to the second team and later to the first team, where he is already a consolidated player with Pepe Mel.
This year, ‘Clau’ adds 13 matches in LaLiga SmartBank, in two games he has started, has scored a goal and has given an assist. The Canarian forward is considered one of the great pearls of the ‘Yellow Academy’ and a player with a promising future.
In addition, ‘Clau’ has the dual nationality of Spain and Guinea-Bissau, the country of origin of his parents. This has allowed him to be a U-18 international with the African team and play a match in the Qualifying Phase of the U-19 Africa Cup, in which he made his international debut with a goal.
