He has only just finished high school, but Axel Key made his debut for the Real Monarchs team last night. At 13 years and 282 days, he became the youngest athlete to compete in the American professional sport.
What did you do when you were 13?
Axel Key made his professional debut in the second division of American football last night.
The attacker was allowed to fill in the hour for Real Monarchs, the second team of the first division Real Salt Lake.
Guy made history with his 13 years and 282 days. He became the youngest professional footballer in the United States, but also the youngest athlete Dowd Court.
However, he is not the youngest professional footballer in the world. In 2009, at the age of 12, Mauricio Baldiviso was inducted into Bolivian first division club Aurora. In fact, his father was the coach of the team at the time.
Cain’s story is reminiscent of Freddie Adu’s infamous life. Known as the “new Peale”, the attacker made his debut in MLS at the age of 14 and immediately signed a lucrative deal with Nike.
But expectations were not met. At first, the American went to Benfica, the leading Portuguese club, but then his route went mainly through obscure European clubs. Adu, 32, is currently out of work.
I hope the Kai fee will be better.
