After Tavernaro and Ebone, another from Belluno from Montebelluna bought by a large company. “I’m proud, I dedicate everything to my grandparents”
There’s no two without three. To the famous saying, there is no escape. Federico Tavernaro to Milan, Tommaso Ebone to Bologna and now Jacopo Renon to Genoa. The third player from Belluno who leaves Montebelluna and joins a professional club during the summer is this boy from Bribano, born in 2007.
An attacking midfielder of undoubted quality, he has signed a definitive agreement with the rossoblù club and in the current season his team is the national under 15. The channel between the Treviso association and the clubs of the top football league therefore continues, and at the same time the number of young players from our province who land in prestigious nurseries is growing. To demonstrate how, despite the much smaller catchment area compared to other territories, interesting kids can also grow on our playgrounds.
As in the case of Ebone, Renon also started playing in the Pizzocco Youth, a real hotbed of interesting talents which has now ceased to exist. At 9, Jacopo was noticed by Marco Cecchet, then head of the Union Feltre nursery. Play for two years in Verdegranata, before moving to Giorgione. A heavy commitment, with transfers by minibus every day to and from Castelfranco Veneto, without forgetting to find time to study, often in the evening after dinner. His great passion and willpower, combined with undoubted technical qualities. Montebelluna keeps an eye on it and in the summer of 2019 it takes it to its nursery. A good choice, no doubt. In spring, various professional associations begin to make themselves felt. Among them, Atalanta, Parma, Vicenza, Cittadella and Genoa precisely. The rossoblùs convinced everyone, and so Renon accepted the Ligurian court, moving to Genoa.
THANKS TO GRANDPARENTS
“I am really proud to have been chosen by a prestigious club such as Genoa”, comments Jacopo, between one engagement and another. «I am aware of having to give my best, in order to be able to repay the trust placed in me. I am very happy for now, I have landed in a competent and well-prepared company and a very nice and familiar environment ». Inevitable thanks to two key figures of the management of Montebelluna. “Stefano Frezza and above all Marco Cecchet, who believed in me right from the start”. And then the sweet thought addressed to the grandparents Franco and Carla: «They have always accompanied me to matches and followed me closely. I gladly share this satisfaction with them, as well as with parents and all relatives ».
