Barcelona: Football prodigy from Kerala, 5-year old Siddharth, has been selected for a 36-week long free training at La Masia.
Siddharth’s talent and goal scoring prowess completely left the scout from Barcelona mesmerized, who was at Bengaluru to watch the football game in which the little Siddharth scored 12 goals within a span 15 minutes.
The moment the game began, Siddharth completely started dominating, and was dribbling past the opponent defence with much ease, it seemed as if he was the only player in the match.
After the game, Sid’s father approached the FC Barcelona scouts asked whether his son can make it to the world renowned academy, much to the fathers surprise, the scouts replied that they are also going to consider scholarship for Siddharth.
Should the talented kid manage to impress the coaches at the La Masia, he might be signed up for longer term at the academy.
