His journey began in Honduras, where the Marcet Academy held a Soccer Camp, and his ability stood out among his peers. “I traveled in 2020 and came for three months, but COVID happened, and I ended up staying at Marcet for the whole year.

During his time at the Academy, Yohanner highlights getting to know teammates from different countries, the tournaments he played in, and his promotion from the lower divisions. “I remember important moments when we used to go on the weekends to deliver food to the people in need who usually sleep on the streets. These are experiences that I cherish and have enriched me as a human being,” he candidly reveals.

The Marcet Academy allowed Yohanner to grow as a footballer and as an individual. “During those two years, I improved in all aspects: sports, mental, tactical, and discipline. I will carry that philosophy and education wherever I go,” he affirms.

They have fought a lot, supported me from a distance, and encouraged me. I want to give them back the love and affection they have given me.”
