A story of passion and perseverance

When Rubén Ponce was eight years old, everyone felt sorry for him. His little legs were as skinny as two sticks and fell forward as he ran. But once he had the ball at his feet, there was no one to stop him unless they tripped him and he fell to the ground.

The road to success

Rubén’s father quickly saw his son’s tremendous potential, but also the lack of muscle needed to succeed in soccer. For ten years, his father put him on a strict diet of pasta Bolognese, Spanish omelets, scrambled eggs with chorizo and rich stews with chickpeas and lots of bacon. At 18, Rubén was as healthy as a horse. His legs instilled fear and although his hip movements were somewhat obscured by his growing belly, his natural talent was still intact and no one could drop him so easily.

Perfect for any occasion

The Football/Soccer Player is a beautiful work of art that appeals both aesthetically and emotionally. It is an ideal gift for any soccer fan or art collector. Add this unique image to your collection and be inspired by the story of perseverance and passion.
