“Nuno Mendes is still a child who loves legos and coloring books”

Nuno Mendes is only 19 years old but he has already achieved things in football that few have achieved or will achieve.

Less than two years after making his Sporting first-team debut, the full-back already has a Portuguese title on his CV, a millionaire transfer to Paris Saint-Germain and 11 AA caps for the Portuguese national team.

More! Share the locker room with stars like Messi, Neymar or Mbappé at PSG, and with Cristiano Ronaldo or Bruno Fernandes.

Despite this, according to his girlfriend, he remains “a kid who loves coloring books, building legos and has a thumb sucking addiction”.

This was made known by his girlfriend, in a relaxed moment by Nuno Mendes in a video from the French club.

In a conversation where he showed a little more what is beyond what you see on the pitch, the player trained at Sporting spoke of the experience of having so many stars in the locker room.

“It was strange to be there with Messi, Neymar and Mbappé. But I like to share the public baths with them. All the young players would like to share the dressing room with these players. And with the three, then, it’s very difficult. I did it and I’m very happy to share the dressing room with them. And even with Ronaldo in the national team,” he said.

The young man who lost his father very young also assured that his father could never have imagined that he would go so far in football.

“My father did not imagine me arriving at PSG. Not at Sporting! He did not see me play at Sporting, but he must be proud of me,” he said.

Watch the conversation in which Nuno Mendes gets to know him more intimately and you can see that he remains a humble child:
