His journey through sports didn’t begin with football as he was much passionate about roller hockey in the light of his father professionalism in the game. Back then as a child, he constantly wavered between roller hockey and football.

In

Pedro Neto life story

, Sérgio Lomba his uncle from his mother’s side has made an indelible impression on his future career. As a retired footballer, he advised the young Pedro to join him in the footballing trade and Pedro heed his advice cheerfully.

Therefore Pedro Neto’s journey through professional football began in his Portuguese hometown and under the guide of Uncle Sérgio Miguel he successfully was enrolled in the local club

Vianense

.

Then his progress there took him to Perspectiva em Jogo as he spent three years of his early span there. When he was 13 years old, he utterly dedicated himself to the game to such an extent that he made a successful trial with S.C. Braga’s academy, which is a well-known sports team located near his family home.

His father who is often known as the Senior of his son’s name, as a great dad has encouraged his son in every step of the way. Being a professional hockey player, he culminated in his son a fierce passion for sports.

Much to your consternation, he very intellectually approved the choice of leaving hockey for football. No doubt he is the proudest member of his family who is overjoyed by his son's success as Pedro has shown so much gratefulness to him. 

Besides, without his mother, perhaps it would not be presumable for him to pursue the football career since his uncle who led him to football was linked to Pedro by his mother side.

More specifically his mother was born in Mozambique, which is a country located in East Africa. With the companion of his husband, she is blessed with the honour of having the most successful Portuguese football family in the municipality of Viana do Castelo while they are still living with their son in England.
