1 year old gets ten-year football contract

Venlo2-footy-kidAs football clubs go to new lengths  to sign the next big thing before everybody else, Dutch club VVV-Venlo has just taken it to new levels by signing a 1-year old!

The toddler in question is Baerke Van Der Meij, and he came to the Ducth club’s attention after his dad put a video on Youtube showing Baerke kick three balls into  a cardboard box.

Talking about the kid’s future, the club have said,

“The toddler’s favourite position has not yet been determined.

“But we can speak of a right-footed player with a very good kicking technique, perseverance and, importantly, football genes via his grandfather.”

So what do you reckon of his skills? Will he be the next Dutch footballing legend?
