IN THE PRESS
Highly rated 10-year-old Aussie Beckham Baker is heading to La Liga club Villarreal for a trial.
The technically gifted junior was spotted by the Spanish club during their recent junior academy program in Melbourne.
He’ll be at Villarreal for 10 days initially, although that might be extended if he continues to impress the Spanish outfit’s junior coaches.
Some of you may be familiar with the story of young George Paterakis.
He recently returned to Melbourne from his inaugural season training at the Villareal CF facilities, under the watchful eye of professional UEFA licensed coaches who carefully assessed his capabilities and determined that his stay at the club should be extended.
