Seven year-old Australian Panos Armenakas is set to train at Bolton while on holiday (not sure what kind of holiday it is…).
The tiny child is a football prodigy and has already been linked to a host of top European clubs including Barcelona, where he also trained for a brief time. While his tender age has prevented any solid offers, that hasn’t stopped Dan Fletcher, his agent, from chomping at the bit,
“His father sent Barcelona DVDs of Panos in action and I managed to arrange some training with the club while he was in Spain.
“They were flabbergasted by him after watching him and he is a phenomenal talent, but it is too early to be talking of moving to any clubs.
The young man is not the first little boy to make waves in the footballing world, with Brazilian nine year-old and supposed Manchester United target Jean Carlos Chera making a splash when a video of him taking apart some extremely less-talented children made the rounds on the internet.
Of course, despite their talent, these kids have a long way to go and a lot to overcome before they can be deemed a success. But it does beg the question – what the f**k is wrong with the rest of us?
