Some footage has emerged of Nottingham Forest-bound Gustavo Scarpa and a trait of his could help him be a success in England.
The Reds agreed on a deal to sign the 28-year-old back in the summer. First, he would stay with Palmeiras until the end of his contract.
Scarpa helped the Brazilian outfit claim the league title and last night he scooped the ESPN Brasil Golden Ball award.
The left-footed wizard collected his prize on a skateboard much to the amusement of fans all over the world.
It won’t be fun and games for Scarpa when he gets over to England. He will want to work hard and quickly prove himself to boss Steve Cooper.
One trait that he’s got that could please the Forest head coach is that he appears to talk very good English.
Despite being born and bred in Brazil, Scarpa has a thick American accent and his English appears to be absolutely fine.
The Nottingham lino might take him some getting used to but it would appear that there will be no problem with him communicating with his teammates.

Being able to speak the language obviously isn’t the main aspect of being a success in England.
Clearly, he will need some quality but it might persuade Cooper to give him a start sooner than he might if he didn’t speak the language.
Scarpa seems like a real character and it looks like he might prove to be a useful addition to the dressing room.
During the 2022 campaign, the forward played out of his skin scoring 13 goals and registering 15 assists.
As a result, he will land in England full of confidence and he will be keen to play for Forest as quickly as possible.
Speaking English should help him settle and Cooper will surely be delighted.
