“I met Gonzalo in Berlin in 2009 when we had both gone there for trials.

From the first moment, I noticed in Gonzalo a soccer player who was different from the rest in many ways. A very cultured and generous person, who cared and tried to help all the people around him. Being older than me, he gave me a lot of advice about soccer and life and made me feel comfortable with him from the first moment. He shared his experiences with me on and off the pitch and helped me a lot to focus on my goals and to know how to handle myself in the world of soccer. Since we met, until today, he has been watching over me and my career and always ready to give me advice or an encouraging message. He was a very dedicated central defender, who stood out for his concentration and technical and tactical knowledge. He always knew where to be located and displayed a winning attitude all the time. To this he added a great knowledge of the game, which allowed him to always be one step ahead of the rival. It would be a privilege for Gonzalo to be your child's coach.”

"We've had a great experience with The Lab Soccer training! Gonzalo is pleasant to work with. He understands the training that my daughter needs and communicates well with her on the drills. His training has definitely helped her become more skilled in her position and grow as a soccer player."
