Who is Emerson Royal: Biography
Laliga side FC Barcelona has informed Real Betis that they are exercising their right to bring home Emerson Royal.
The defender is now the sole property of the Catalan giant by buying him outright in €9 million after a two-year loan.
His full name is Emerson Aparecido Leite de Souza, but since his second season at Betis (2019/20) he has started using a nickname given to him by his aunt when he was a kid.
The name came from a character used by the Royal brand in a jelly commercial, who had a huge mouth. As Emerson cried so much as a baby, and opened his mouth so wide when he did so, he was called Royal after the ad.
The new blaugrana star has come a long way since his infancy in the ‘favela’ slum of Ermelino Matarazzo (Sao Paulo). But he is very proud of everything he has achieved, and has the words da favela para o mundo (from the favela to the world) tattood on his arm).
“I’ve always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come. I don’t do things half-heartedly. Because I know if I do, then I can expect half-hearted results.” That Michael Jordan quote has been the inspiration that has driven Emerson to get where he is today.
He also does as much as he can to support the people who still live there, and during the Covid-19 pandemic, he has been sending food packages to help the people.
Royal always bears the characteristic Brazilian smile. “I don’t like boring people” he says. “We Brazilians have an identity, we like to be with other people, talking and smiling. I’m happy. My family is always laughing.”
