Teenage Wonderkid Setting Pulses Racing At Juve

Excitement is growing at Juventus over the future of 14-year-old Andrea Schiavone, so talented that he is already set to be called up to play for the Primavera side.

Schiavone has been described as having an uncanny similarity to the style of play of Milan superstar Andrea Pirlo.

The midfielder is so far superior to those in his age-group at Juventus that he is set to be called up to play with players three-to-four years older than him in the Primavera side.

"For Andrea age-group is not a problem,” said his current Coach Domenico Maggiora.

“He has a very strong personality and I am convinced that he will already be playing for the Primavera side in the Spring.

“He contests the game well, jumps and heads well and has a great shot, especially with his right foot.”

There has been an explosion of teenage talent in Italy in recent weeks with first Mario Balotelli of Inter and then Alberto Paloschi of Milan.

The belief is that Schiavone has just as great a potential as both of these players.

"It truly is a joy for the nursery of Juve,” said Mister Massimo Maddaoloni.

“He has the quality of Andrea Pirlo in the way that he sees and reads the game. He also can be compared to [Daniele] De Rossi due to his dynamism and fight.”

That 18-year old Paloschi guy was subbed in ... and 30 seconds after... he scored the winning goal for AC Milan last week against Siena. Expect big things from this genius.
