This is a bit crazy!
The kid is only 9 years old and already Manchester United has asked for videotape of him; other major teams are also showing interest.
I mean when can he start playing professionally??
14 or 15 at best...

I was amazed at the fact that Freddy Adu was playing professionally at 15.
That is one thing, but this...

It was kind of funny when the artcile said that sonograms would soon be used as recruiting tools for soccer.

Seriously though, whatever happened to letting kids be kids, a 9-year old is being scouted by professional soccer clubs, unbelievable!

Yes, the sonogram part was cute.
Basically it was a nice way the writer's nice way of saying that this is getting a bit ridiculous... :)
