9 year old wunderkind joins Manchester United (video)

Manchester United have snapped up nine year old sensation Rhain Davis who lives in Brisbane, Australia.

The youngster’s grandfather sent United a DVD of Rhain’s highlights across a number of games for his local club. With skills very similar to 12 year old Turkish wunderkind Muhammed Demirci, Davis looks every bit the young superstar. Claimed to resemble Wayne Rooney, I would suggest he looks much more a young Matt Le Tissier, although he brings the traditional Brazilian stopovers to the table.

Rhain's family will move with the youngster to England. Here is a video of his exploits:

I saw that news about the australian kid too. it's incredible how young these signings are getting. Almost like child slavery in a way.

btw did you see the Giuseppe Rossi transfer? Tevez going to manU yielded a forward for Villar :D It just doesn't get better than this.

I'm freaking amazed at Villarreal's ability to sign these incredible deals. Diego Forlan 1.5m GBP from ManU then sold for 20 mil euro. Then get 6m of free money from Ayala's deal. Now Rossi. I don't care if there's a buy back clause, it doesn't matter as long as Villar keeps Rossi. We need him, ManU doesn't, and I think he'll like spain.

The vast majority of that clip is his teammates stopping running and start walking because they know once he's got the ball they will never see it - no matter how open they are, no matter how much they flail their arms calling for the ball - no matter how much effort they put into getting into an advantageous position.

It looks as if the coaches of these 9 year olds find that acceptable too.

Hopefully someone can teach this kid how to enjoy the game at that age (which he should be doing) and get his teammates involved in the game.

If I were that age - I'd knock his block off if I were his "so-called" teammate. Wanna be a ballhog - hog this - smack!!!!
