Gilberto Silva To Speak At Soccerex Global Convention



Ex-Arsenal midfielder and current Panathinaikos Technical Director, Gilberto Silva, will speak at the upcoming Soccerex Global Convention, 26th-28th September, Manchester.
Gilberto will be joining Edwin Van Der Sar, Alain Belsoeur and Gerard Houllier to discuss  "Academies: A Foundation for Success" with the panellists sharing their extensive experience on player development and the role academies play in the strategic and commercial development of football clubs.
The former midfielder will also be part of a session looking at football's global responsibility, detailing the work he does as an ambassador for Street Child United and how football can have such a positive impact on young people's lives.
Gilberto's glittering career started at América Mineiro, officially becoming a full time professional at the age of 21. In 2002, Gilberto made the switch to England, signing for Arsenal in a deal worth £4.5m. He then went on to become an integral part of the famous Invincibles squad that won the Premier League title in the 2003-2004 season, going unbeaten in the league, as well as winning 2 further FA Cups and Community Shield trophies during his time in England.
Alongside his club career, Gilberto also made 93 appearances for his country including playing every minute of Brazil's 2002 World Cup campaign, a tournament that his nation went on to eventually win. Gilberto was seen as a vital asset in the team and earned praise from many of the game's big names, labelled as the unsung hero within the Brazilian ranks. Despite being the defensive anchor in midfield, the player was not short of attacking intent, setting up Ronaldo's semi final goal that put Brazil through to the World Cup Final.
