Julio Baptista was one of the most important players of the last 20 years of Brazilian soccer. The attacking midfielder was called "The Beast" because of his large size and power when he played. At Real Madrid it was his best stage as a player but his career as a footballer ended a while ago and now he is dedicated to something else in the world of football.
Ronaldo Nazario is the current majority shareholder and president of Real Valladolid. Ronaldo Nazario's idea is to take his new team to the top and that is why he hired Julio Baptista to be the coach of one of Real Valladolid's youth divisions. Julio Baptista is currently in the under 19 category and he looks very happy.
On his official Instagram page, Julio Baptista declared that he is very excited about this opportunity that Ronaldo Nazario gave him to be part of his club. Baptista assured that he will work in the best possible way to take Real Valladolid to the top and thus not disappoint his friend Ronaldo Nazario. Baptista and Ronaldo have known each other for years.
Ronaldo Nazario had said that he was in charge of the presidency of Real Valladolid for only four years but in the last days he commented that he would like to stay 5 more years. The project that he is carrying out in Real Valladolid is very promising and even more so knowing that he can convince great stars like Julio Baptista to accompany him.
