The 2018-2019 edition of the University of Northern British Columbia’s Men’s soccer team will have a European flair, as the Timberwolves officially announce the commitment of French winger Pierre Barrafranca for the upcoming Canada West season.
“When I started talking to Steve, he was interested in my profile. We talked on the phone, and the feeling was very good. We talked about soccer, and I really liked his way of looking at the game. After the call, I decided to come here.”
“When I arrived, my English was terrible. So I improved that, but I also learned a totally new way to play soccer. It is different, how they play here, how they play in the United States, and how they play in Europe. In America, athleticism is more important. In France, the tactics are more important.”
“We are hoping to improve the attacking element of our game, and we expect Pierre to play a part in that. He is dynamic, and confident, and he loves the game. That love for soccer is why he is already proving to be a great fit with our team and environment.”
“They are very good guys who play very good soccer. There is chemistry between all the players and that is very important. Everyone is one group, and they all try to push up the other players to the best level, and the best they can do.”
“The campus is very beautiful. I was impressed by the architecture. Canadian people are very welcoming. My arrival here has been very good.”
“They can expect to see me dribbling, getting assists, and scoring a lot of goals, I hope. Helping make this the best team, helping the team win, and going as far as possible towards a championship.”
