9 year old signs with professional soccer team

Manchester United has signed a gifted soccer player. He has amazing footwork, dribbling, and goal scoring abilities. Oh yeah, he's 9 years old.

Rhain Davis is British but has grown up in Australia. Rhain Davis's grandfather sent a video clip to Manchester United and posted on YouTube where the team quickly signed him. Davis will join their academy in Britain and train with other kids his age and older. The developmental academy will train him until he officially joins the team or until his contract is not renewed.

Doesn't this sound a little like the whole Jedi knight training program?
