Team Gullit, the FIFA esports academy established by Dutch legend Ruud Gullit, has announced that they have signed 18-year-old Henrique 'Zezinho' Lempke, a Brazilian player who is representing Team Gullit during the playoffs of the FIFA eWorld Cup, happening right now in Amsterdam.
"I am extremely proud that Henrique joins Team Gullit as the first international talent ever. We are in contact since the beginning of February, even before his huge breakthrough during the qualifications of the FIFA eWorld Cup in Manchester. We hope to add more international talents in our academy soon," says Ballon d'Or winner Ruud Gullit.
The roster now contains Henrique Lempke, Floris Jorna, Julian van den Berg, and Dani Visser, all of which are under the age of 20. Will you be following Zezinho's progress?
