For a year. To study.
I'll be doing the MBA in Football Industries at the University of Liverpool.
Some of you are probably aware I've been trying this for a while. I nearly moved to scouse land back in 2014 but I decided to stay in Brazil to work in the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Since then Brazil have gone into an economic crisis which affected the real/pound exchange rate for the worse (for us), and seriously threatened my ability to pay for the course. So doing the course this year was entirely dependent on me getting a scholarship.
Which I just did. A full scholarship!!!
There are some bureaucratic details yet to be sorted out but I should be moving to Liverpool in September/2016 to stay for a year. After that I need to come back to Brazil for 2 years, as established in the scholarship rules.
I am delighted. I'll be asking for help with tickets all the freaking time, so you should get used to it!
I wanna make the most of my time in Merseyside.
I'm also very much looking forward to seeing some LFC Reds friends again and meeting new ones.
