Ryan has shown a cannon line since arriving at Basque, at the age of six – In 2017, at the age of eleven, he had already scored almost 300 goals. Because of this, he had been skipping some steps in his training process.

Appointed to the role of general manager of the base in June last year, Rodrigo Dias makes the boy the perfect example of the “hurry up without running” philosophy applied at the club.

The principle we preach here in the rule is to hurry without running. During this period we got a promotion for Ryan because he showed he needed a different challenge, so he got promoted to U-17 and he was able to make that comeback. This is a process we used here – Rodrygo explained in an interview Basque TV last week.

“The criterion we use is quality, not age. But of course: without running, we have to provide the right challenge so that the athlete can grow and develop,” he added.

The striker is still under 15 years old, but last year he started playing in the first category and, on his debut, scored a goal against Fluminense in the Copa Rio U-17 final. In November, He starred in a sad scene when the confusion began in the defeat of Flamengo by Carioca U15, but he ended 2021 integrated into the under-20 squad that was already preparing to play for Kupina.
