Youth and goals
A goalscorer, he is excellent at shooting and one-on-ones. At Barcelona he is reunited with friend and compatriot Thiagus Petrus, with whom he has played in the Brazilian national team. "I spoke about the team with him, and he told me that every player has a winning mentality," said Langaro.
Handball manager David Barrufet said of Langaro: "He attacks and defends. This will allow us to make faster counterattacks."
