“I’m available, but Diniz has his plans. My condition is good and I’m going to work. I’ll improve every day and I’ll be patient waiting for an opportunity. I was expecting a strong and united group. Already in the first practices I observed the team and their behavior I’m learning with them and adapting as quickly as possible to do the same thing. Due to my characteristic in the middle, with a lot of technique that the teacher likes, I see that I can help with the ball out, movement inside and creation of plays. an offensive half,” he added.
Born in Ribeirão Preto, Augusto was revealed by São Paulo and in 2017, still at the age of 17, he was traded with Real Madrid, where he did not sign. He played on loan from Real Madrid Castilla, CD Leonesa and Las Rozas, all in Spain.
