Rico Salem

Player Representation Testimonial


We're thrilled to announce that 17 Yr old Rico Salem, has officially signed with Real Oviedo's Under 19's squad! 🇦🇺🔜🇪🇸

Rico first caught our eye nearly three years ago at one of our scouting events. Despite suffering an ankle injury on the very first day, his brief display of talent was undeniable. This led to a trial with Celta De Vigo, where he spent three fruitful months and nearly secured a signing, though the deal unfortunately did not materialize.

He didn't let that experience get him down, Rico came back to Australia more determined than ever. Earlier this year, he showed up at another event, and this time, he caught the eye of Real Oviedo's head scout. They offered him a one-month trial, and well, the rest is history. Congratulations Rico! On behalf of Elite Football we thank you and your parents for entrusting us with your future and couldn’t be happier in the role we were able to play in your achievements! 🌟

I would like to start of with saying a huge thank you to Alan and Elite Football for making this possible, I am forever grateful for this opportunity. I also appreciate all the people who have had faith in me from the start. Can’t wait to get started with Real Oviedo” - Rico Salem 🗣️
