However, he believes that social media networks are counterproductive for player performance due to the criticism players receive, which often descends into abuse.

The player told Esquire magazine, in quotes carried by Cadena Cope: “After I made my debut, I stopped looking at social networks because if you believe it, your performance suffers and you are not the same.”

The forward also discussed there being no fans in stadiums for over a year: “Playing without a crowd sucks. You want to be a footballer because of the fans and to celebrate a goal with them.”

The teenage forward is currently recovering from a long-term knee injury.
