Cracks of the 21st century: Pino, the new Canary promise

first_imgYéremi Pino (Gran Canaria, 2002) is one of the last footballers to stand out in the always fruitful Canarian youth academy. It is a classic end, with one against one, speed, snatch and good ball hitting in the centers.

He was one of the important pieces of La Rojita, but only one day before the start of the championship he had to return to Spain.
