Man U recruits 9-year-old, after seeing DVD
Davis described as the next Rooney; 4-minute highlight clip on YouTube
Slide show: Updated: 1 hour, 10 minutes ago

MANCHESTER, England - Manchester United has recruited a 9-year-old soccer prodigy based on video footage featuring his skills.

The club brought in Rhain Davis after his grandfather sent a DVD to United youth staff showing the boy playing for an under-10 team in Brisbane, Australia.

"Manchester United is proud of its history of developing talented young players, and invests considerable time and resources into trying to find the best young players of the future," the club said in a statement.


In Davis' case, however, United need only have invested four minutes. That is the length of a YouTube clip featuring Davis's dribbling, stepover and goal-scoring skills - viewed more than 800,000 times on the site - that has led fans to describe him as the next Wayne Rooney.

The club has downplayed such hype, pointing out that it recruits about 40 players of Davis' age every year, and that Davis' status with the club will be subject to the same annual review as any other youth player.

Davis has moved to England and is training with a United youth squad.

"Being here has been brilliant," The Sun newspaper quoted Davis as saying. "The best part has been meeting a lot of the players, like Wayne Rooney."

Davis was born in England and has a British passport. His grandfather lives in England.

Oh. My. God. I thought this was a brilliant joke, Red99, but it's true!

Ater watching this video, I have to admit this player is pretty remarkable for such a young age. I couldn't however, get over the fact that the rest of the team was just standing on the field. This kid has tons of talent, but I am sure that the rest of the 9 year old team didn't see it the same way.

seemed to hold onto the ball a little too long but at least passed off after a while. Good raw talent and field vision. Will need to give up the ball faster in a couple of years.

It will be interesting to see if this kid does become the next Wayne Rooney. Certainly looks to be on the right track. As my younger son said, "Dad, his moves are sick!"http://www.pic4ever.com/5020.gif

Brazilian club to train 9-year-old soccer prodigy
Last Updated: Wednesday, March 16, 2005 | 8:52 PM ET
CBC Sports

Brazilian soccer team Santos has edged out English powerhouse Manchester United for the right to train nine-year-old budding star Jean Carlos Chera. Chera's standout play as a midfielder in his native Brazil caused some of the finest soccer teams in the world to bid on the opportunity to train him.

Santos, the Brazilian champion, is moving the nine-year-old Chera and his family to Santos – a coastal city of about 400 kilometres southwest of Rio. The team is paying the youth and his family an undisclosed amount of money.

"Our soccer people say he's something special, that he has exceptional skills for his age," Santos spokesman Aldo Neto told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Chera is too young to sign a professional contract under Brazilian law. Santos must renew its agreement with Chera's family until the young soccer player turns 16, according to Aldo Neto.

"Nothing prevents him from leaving. He has no professional sports link to the club," Aldo Neto said.

Chera isn't the first young soccer talent Santos has helped discover. Pele debuted with the Brazilian team at age 17.

Did anyone else notice in a few of the clips from the first (British kid) video a couple times where teammates were raising their hands for a pass but he was just dribbling away doing his thing? One kid just dropped his arms to his side in frustration. Granted he did pick his head up a few times and make some real nice passes but there were other times that he didn't when he did have open players.

Okay, not to put down this kid, he is really amazing and can do some pretty fancy stuff, but don't other kids catch up and those moves don't work so well later on when defenders figure it out and/or teammates move into the run more and get open? This is a serious question for the coaches on the forum. Am I the only one who thinks 9 years old is a little too young for professional recruiting?!

My kid would say what a ball hog, but that's why he won't ever be picked for regional or national teams. I'm told all they look for is players who can beat other players 1-on-1.

I'm going to be a curmudgeon by saying I'm not terribly impressed with the kid going to ManU. It wasn't like the competition he was up against was anything to write home about and I've seen even girls this age capable of doing the same. The fact that he was a ball hog, doesn't bother me though.

Here's a clip of the Brazilian kid. IMO he's more impressive:

While this clip doesn't show him in a team situation at all, here's a 9 year old from Hawaii who I'd love to see play. Got to the end of the clip because what he does is more than just juggling:

funny I thought all Brazalian kids played on streets or in alleys with a beaten up ball and burned out cars for goals. I must have been mistaken because that looked like a full sided 11 v 11 game with coaches, uniforms and refs??? at 9 years old, do they know what they are doing to those kids' development??

Yes but it is a fun hijack. I vote that "fun" hijacks should be allowed. I bet if the 38 page MPS thread was restarted you would not care if it was hijacked!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Of course Guest wants to argue if it is a hijack or not.

I know this isn't soccer, but I thought it was certainly interesting and related to the idea of these child prodigies. This little girl is very talented, but to sign a record deal at 6 years of age is going a bit too far.

Child 'Talent' Star Ditched Because of Age

LONDON (Aug. 14) - Simon Cowell, the self-styled TV talent-show tough-guy, is in the news again for his ruthless behavior. But this time, Cowell has been blamed for picking on a six-year-old.

A string of reports are turning the screw on Cowell and his label Sony BMG for reneging on a vow to deliver youngster Connie Talbot a record deal. Talbot had shone so brightly on TV talent quest "Britain's Got Talent" that Cowell described her talent as "pure magic."

However, Talbot's performance of "Somewhere over the Rainbow" did not have a fairytale ending. Syco and Sony BMG ultimately declined to sign the potential star because, they claim, she was too young.

"There was some deliberation over the possibility of recording with Connie," Sony BMG says in a statement. "However the decision not to proceed was made with the best intentions for Connie, taking into consideration her age and that it would not be right to do so at this time."
