Kerlon, the amazing head dribbler

I heard rumors about a Brazilian wunderkind named Kerlon which dribbled the ball with his head to go past players.

Zidane from Real Madrid and Ronaldinho from Barcelona are famous for creating new tricks other players copy but here is one which is truly unique and I have the video to prove it:



Kerlon Moura Souza plays for Brazilian club Cruzeiro, where his trick is named 'seal dribble'. He and his father claim he’s been perfecting the trick since he was a little boy. This may sound like a circus trick but it's very effective.

Bewildered defenders don’t know how to stop it and, as you can see from the video, resort to fouling the player. At 17 Kerlon has not broken into the Cruzeiro first team. A testament to how overstocked Brazil is with players.

It’s astonishing how many superstars emerge from the same country. European youth systems like Ajax and Arsenal are criticized for being too structured in their programs to the detriment of creativity, look how fathers teach their kids football in Brazil. They are not taught to play well, they are taught to play creatively.

Unfortunately, work permits keep most of these starlets out of the Premiership until they cycle thru other leagues and become 10 times the price.

Curious as to how one can say Ajax and Arsenal's training systems are too structured when Arsenal probably plays the closest thing to free-flowing, innovative Brasilian football anywhere.

interesting article. however the other day i was just reading about how the dutch youth system has been criticised because it creates too many creative individuals and not enough 'hard team' players to help shore things together. also arsenal structured? if by that you mean very organised and well run then yes. in regards to football, no. arsenal continue to play free flowing football with creativity expected from its players, right through the ranks. a testament shown by julio baptista who said he was glad he hadnt gone to any other english club as they do not play proper football. arsenal on the other hand, do. also i wouldnt fancy his chances of getting round someone like john terry or david dunne with this trick.
