Who is Angelo Gabriel?

Ângelo Gabriel Borges Damaceno is a footballer who plays for Chelsea – he is also commonly known as just ‘Angelo’.

Angelo thrived at a young age as a footballer. He joined Santos’ ranks at the age of ten and impressed so much during his time there that he even made the step up to play for the under-20s at the age of just 15.

Angelo signed his first professional contract with the Brazilian giants on the 20th of October 2020, which became effective on his 16th birthday.

He made his first-team debut just two days later, at just 5 years, 10 months and 4 days – becoming the second youngest-ever player to feature for the club.

He featured 129 times in total across the next three years before the Premier League giants Chelsea came knocking and secured his signature for £13m.

Where and when was Angelo Gabriel born?

Angelo was born on the 21st of December 2004 – which currently makes him at the time of writing 18 years old.

He was born in Brasilia, Brazil.

What position does Angelo Gabriel play?

Angelo is predominantly a winger who was regularly utilised off the right-hand side of the frontline.

It’s worth mentioning Angelo’s height is 5ft 9 inches.

How good is Angelo Gabriel?

There was a reason Chelsea snapped up the Brazilian’s signature. To rack up 129 appearances for a team before your 18 birthday is nothing short of ludicrous.

Santos must have seen something special in him. With their track record of unearthing world beaters, such as Pele and Neymar – it really is no surprise to see Chelsea take a punt on him.

He may need a bit more time to adjust to the Premier League, which has led to speculation he may go out on loan after the tour finishes.

Nevertheless – he looks like a real player. Just check out some of his highlights whilst he was in Brazil below.
