Misissauga, August 5, 2021
Brampton Resident, Prostars FC player , Jesse Costa (age 16), has signed a contract with VfL Wolfsburg of the German Bundesliga and a UEFA Champions League qualifying club
“We are incredibly happy and proud that one of our top talents was able to impress the coaches and managers at VfL Wolfsburg and be offered a contract. Through our player development plan at Prostars, Jesse is the latest to achieve this step towards a professional soccer career. This milestone was made possible through our European partnerships with our Talent Coordinator for Europe, Marko Maschke (UEFA Pro license holder) and player agent Clemens Krueger (ck soccer solutions)," said Josef Komlodi, Technical Director of Prostars FC.
“We have always been convinced of Jesse’s great potential. His call up for the U-15 and U-16 Portuguese national team last year, and in June of this year, showed how far his development has come. Jesse's path now continues with the large and successful VfL Wolfsburg. Prostars are expanding our cooperation with our European partners to open the door to the professional game for our other players,” said Gabriel Pop, Academy Director of Prostars FC.
“We look back on a very difficult time for young soccer players during the pandemic restrictions, which also impacted talent scouting and development. I am therefore very pleased that in Jesse we have found a highly talented player with exceptional technical, tactical, and physical soccer abilities. Above all, Jesse has an excellent mindset and professionalism that make him an extraordinarily promising professional player at his age. His success is also a sign of the soccer talent in Canada,” said Maschke.
“Jesse mastered the challenges he faced in the months and weeks leading to this point with flying colors. It was impressive to see how he proved himself on and off the pitch and was able to convince the coaches and managers of his talent and professional potential. Jesse worked very hard for his goals and this significant opportunity with VfL Wolfsburg is the result of his work and dedication. The exceptional player environment he now finds himself in at VfL Wolfsburg will further build his path towards the professional level in Europe,” said Clemens Krueger, CEO of CK Soccer Solutions in Berlin.
Jesse recently played two test matches with his new team, scoring during a 3:0 victory against the U-17 of Arminia Bielefeld last weekend, his first goal under the new colours at VfL Wolfsburg. On August 7-8, Jesse and VfL Wolfsburg play at the GG8 Youngster Cup in Germany, which includes other top U-17 European teams, such as from Bayern Munich and Paris St. Germain.

For the last year Kennedi has played in Ontario’s Semi Professional league, League 1with Woodbridge Strikers.
