The little girl from Brazil has been suffering from a form of cancer for some time now, and became a great fan of Antony during his time at São Paulo, the club based in the city where she lives. The first time they met was truly special, and led to a close friendship for life. So, whenever he scores, Antony makes an 'L' sign with his fingers, a reference to both his son Lorenzo and Larissa.
Larissa visited Amsterdam in April, along with her mother and two sisters. The family watched Ajax v PEC Zwolle (3-0), and also had a tour of the Johan Cruijff ArenA. In this beautiful and emotional special report, the special bond between Antony and Larissa becomes even clearer.
