Zenit striker Malcom was named the best player of the RPL season. He scored 23 goals in 27 games and had the highest number of shots on target. It's a good time to meet Malcom's inspiration, Leticia Pereira.
Who is Leticia Pereira?
The girl with the beautiful name Leticia was born in 1997 in Brazil, where she later met her love. She graduated from medical school as a dentist, but she did not work in her specialty.Bet on football with 1xBet
Leticia met Malcolm in 2015. They started dating a year later, when the football player was about to move to Europe - he was transferred from Corinthians to Bordeaux. Without hesitation, the girl went to conquer France with her lover. And then Barcelona, where the footballer spent the 2018/2019 season. But it was not only in warm Europe that she traveled with him.
In 2019, Malcom signed a contract with Zenit. Within four years, the Brazilian couple settled in the cultural capital of Russia so comfortably that in March Malcom received Russian citizenship.
Family is Malcom's main source of motivation
Leticia supported the player throughout his rise to stardom at Zenit. In return, Malcom dedicated his goals to his beloved. Family is an important source of motivation for the Brazilian. He often refers to Leticia as "his angel" and thanks God for meeting her. And like a true romantic, Malcom also writes touching messages to Leticia.
Here's one of them. "Happy birthday, my love. I wish you all the best in the world. You are an incredible woman. Thank you for everything! Just know I'll be there for you," the footballer confessed on his social media.
Leticia and Malcom love St. Petersburg. They especially like taking a boat on the Neva River, looking at the drawbridges and visiting the Hermitage Museum.
The couple also visits restaurants, goes to social events and travels a lot. The Maldives, Dubai and Ibiza are on their list of favorite places.Bet on football with 1xBet
Why did Leticia go to Brazil to give birth?
On May 14, 2023, Malcom and Leticia welcomed their long-awaited first born son. The boy was named Gabriel, in honor of the Archangel. The girl went to give birth at home in Brazil to be close to her family.
For the football player, the birth of a son is a real miracle from God. In an interview with Championat edition, Malcom said that his wife had health problems. It turns out that she had an operation, which made it very difficult to get pregnant.Bet on football with 1xBet
To be by the side of his beloved on such an important day, the footballer asked for permission from the management of Zenit to go to Brazil. Malcom had to miss three games because of his departure, but still remained the RPL's top scorer.
The other day there was news about Malcom's possible departure from Zenit. Assistant manager William de Oliveira has responded to the rumors. In an interview with Telecomasia, Oliveira said that Malcom is completely happy with the club. After the birth of his son, he is in a great mood and has a serious lack of sleep.
"I have recommended to hire a couple of babysitters in St. Petersburg by the time he returns," said the Brazilian coach of Zenit in a conversation with our edition. So the club expects that the whole family of the best player of the season will return to Russia as soon as possible.
Congratulations to Malcom and his sweetheart Leticia on the birth of their son. We are sure that this happy event will be a great motivation for the player in the next season. We'll see whether it will be in Zenit or a European club.
