A nine-year-old boy from Cape Town, South Africa, managed to land a contract with one of the biggest football clubs in the world.
Football prodigy Jayden Adetiba, who dreams of becoming the best soccer player in the world, took part in a five week trial with Arsenal Football Club, after which he was awarded a deal with the football giants.
According to The South African, Adetiba trained at the SuperSport United’s soccer school the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town, where he learned his exceptional skills.
His dad, John, said he encourages his son to follow his dreams, but added he makes sure his son knows he has to work hard to achieve them.
John added he is aware only a few players make professional level, but added he would not crush his son's dreams.
"Over the years, I’ve heard over and over children being told that very few make it as professional players. That may be true, but children must be encouraged to believe that they could one of the few if they work hard,” he said.
