Premier League dream, says Forest, who signs Scarpa

Skateboard in hand at his unveiling in Nottingham Forest, it was immediately clear that Gustavo Scarpa is not your standard Brazilian playmaker.

He’s more of a guitar-playing, literature-loving, Rubik’s Cube-solving player, with an influencer-size Instagram following of 1.2 million and plenty of accolades to confirm he’s a real football talent.

When asked to describe himself, the 28-year-old smiled and said: “I’m a very cool person.

“I like to hang out with my family, my wife and my friends. I love skateboarding. It’s a whole different lifestyle.”

The skateboarding tutorials he features in and skydiving videos on his YouTube channel are all proof of that.

Scarpa laughs as he freely admits that skateboarding is probably “too much” in his life – but for all the right reasons.

“It matters a lot,” Scarpa told East Midlands Today. “It helps me a lot to stay calm in my head.

“In the beginning it was like a hobby and now it’s almost like a lifestyle.”

Scarpa became Forest’s 23rd signing of the season when he signed for the Reds in early December.

While he featured in friendlies for the club during the World Cup break, his move from Brazilian champions Palmeiras will not be confirmed until the January 1 transfer window opens.

With Palmeiras, he won eight major trophies in six years, including two Copa Libertadores, two Brazilian league titles and the Brazilian Cup.

He’s capped just one cap for Brazil – in 2017 – and was overlooked in the World Cup squad, but he’s been recognized as the Brasileiro Serie A’s best player with a string of individual awards including ESPN Brasil’s Golden Ball – an award previously won was by Neymar and Ronaldinho.

Scarpa has described his move to the Premier League with Forest – a side in the relegation zone after returning to the top flight after a 23-year absence – as a “dream”.

With everything that sets him apart off the field, however, what Scarpa wants to deliver on the pitch at his new club is much simpler.

“I’m trying to score a few goals and provide a few assists but I’ll definitely work hard,” he said.
