footy news blog

There’s a lot of fuss right now about a certain 9-year-old boy named Rhain Davis, the truth is he is just another kid that has been enrolled into Manchester United’s academy.It is true that he has skills and seen in the video below but than so did Freddy Adu and i think we know how that ended up.

Rhain Davis, who was born in England but has lived in Australia since the age of four, was hailed by the British press on Thursday as the next Wayne Rooney after the United striker.

The boy’s dribbling and goalscoring prowess for an Under-10 side in Brisbane, Australia, feature in a four-minute YouTube clip, already viewed more than 800,000 times.

United confirmed the signing but played down the hype around Davis, who has moved back to Cheshire in northern England with his father, near the club’s training ground.

Rhain came to United’s attention when his grandfather sent the club a DVD of him in action for Redlands United under-10s in Brisbane.

There have you have it, want to play for United? just sent in a DVD, or better still sent in a DVD of your younger brother, cousin or something, who knows…they might just make it to Old Trafford.
