Montana, West Ham and Belgium
With UEFA Euro 2020 underway, we’re highlighting some of our Westminster City School football stars. This week it is Montana, who has been signed by West Ham United.
Year 8 pupil, Montana, was first spotted by scouts at just five years old and initially joined Arsenal. He first played with Arsenal for three years, before being scouted and signed by West Ham United. He has been with the Premier League team for the last five years.
Montana now maintains a busy after-school schedule with his homework to complete, as well as intense training with West Ham United. It takes him around an hour to travel to the West Ham United training ground from his home and he trains three to four times a week there, then has matches at the weekend.
By being signed to West Ham United, Montana has also enjoyed football tours to Germany, France, Belgium and the Czech Republic. Unfortunately, COVID-19 restrictions mean there will be no tours this summer, so he is looking forward to when these can start again.
Montana said: “I’m really happy to be signed with West Ham United and my parents are really proud of my achievements.”
When asked who will win UEFA Euro 2020, Montana predicted Belgium.
