At eight, most kids are probably just beginning to learn to play football properly. Some are just starting to know how to kick the football. Later, when they reached ten, they will learn how to develop other skills such as dribbling and running with the ball.
Football is not an easy sport to master.
Without proper training or natural gift from God, you will be just like everyone else – ordinary!
Claudio Gabriel Nancufil
Therefore, watching young Claudio Gabriel Nancufil in action (see video below) is an absolute pleasure. Claudio Gabriel Nancufil, nicknamed ‘Snow Messi’, plays for a junior club in Bariloche, Argentina, which is on the foothills of the Andes.
The boy is only eight years old, mind you, but his football skills would put to shame many players way above his age.
Even our Harimau Malaya boys can learn a thing or two from Claudio 😀
At such a tender age, Claudio has attracted many top football clubs around the world. It was reported that, Chelsea and Manchester United are locked in a transfer battle for an Argentinian wonderkid aged just EIGHT years old.
Real Madrid, Barcelona, Milan and Atletico Madrid are also watching developments of the youngster destined to be the next Lionel Messi.
See video of him in action below:
Comparison With Messi
The comparison with four times Ballon D’or winner, Lionel Messi, is obviously quite inevitable. Claudio Gabriel Nancufil is left footed, has amazing dribbling skills and is also very small for his age to further the Messi comparison.
The only question now, whether he will grow to become as good as Messi or just another wonder kid that excel during their junior years.
We have that a lot in Malaysia. 😉
Still, you’d probably think he will at least become a professional football player one day. He’s too good compared to boys his age, which is the reason why he will most likely move to any of the top football clubs in the world and will get to develop his skills in super high tech facilities there.
His family have already appointed an agency, Sueno Comunicaciones, to broker a move to Europe with all of the big clubs vying for his services.
I hope he will move to Old Trafford.
Come on Moyes, sign him now!
