Sure there was a 12 year old who played in the Bolivian (?) top flight for his dads side.

Yeah, he was playing MLS footy at 14, so older than this lad.

Adu is now playing for Philadelphia Union in the MLS. Still only aged 22.

Although they're probably decent prospects, it's more likely an indication of teams like Accies lack of depth and finances as much as anything.

Wasnt there some debate over his age?? I can remember hearing something about his mum winning a US visa for them both and that he could be a lot older than he claims!! Could be thinking of someone else though ??? Still, has dissapointed from what was promised.

Maybe it was David Moyes saying he was a Nigerian 14...
