Zayn Ali Salman, the 5-year-old recruited by Arsenal, is a PSG fan


Zayn Ali Salman is the youngest player to ever enter the Gunners' football school. Nicknamed "the little Messi", he comes from party

It is well known that the value does not wait for the number of years.

But there, Arsenal went strong by recruiting Zayn Ali Salman in his football school at only… 4 years old.

A prodigy so precocious, if we are to believe his father, that his talent was detected from motherhood!

“I realized when he was born,” he told the BBC.

I remember the nurse put him on his stomach and he lifted his head and started looking around.

She was shocked.

You could tell yourself that he was very strong from an early age.

It sets the tone for his education.

You could tell he was different from other kids.

What really stands out is its balance.

He has had an incredible balance from an early age.

The mini Gunner, nicknamed "the little Messi", was the subject of approaches from other big clubs before joining the London formation.

It's hard to imagine that he's still in nursery when he's not kicking a ball ...

"He was obviously played with kids his age group of four, five or six and he was already head and shoulders above everyone else," said Austin Schofield, his coach at First Touch. Academy.

He was faster than them, he had better dispositions with the ball.

The way he hits and passes the ball was so much better than anyone else's.

So we upgraded him

(he plays against 6, 7, 8 year old kids)

, I spoke with his dad and he wanted to try it out with older kids.

I said to myself:

Why not, let's try

Stephen Deans, pearl finder from the London club, had no doubts when he saw the future prodigy.

“This kid is doing things he shouldn't be doing,” he blurted out.

The way he kicks the ball sounds too much for someone his age.

So I called a friend and he said:

He is four years old


I said:

It is not possible, it cannot be the nursery, I have to talk to his parents.

And we have come to this.


Little Zayn celebrated his fifth birthday last week.

He received as a gift a Fifa player card bearing his likeness ... on which he wears a PSG jersey, matching his pajamas.

We may already know his future destination ...
