Real Madrid Wonderkid Forced To Delete Messi Tweets

Norwegian wonderkid Martin Odegaard was reportedly forced to remove tweets praising Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi when he signed with Real Madrid.

It has been reported that the young Norwegian talent was instructed to delete tweets from his personal twitter account that praised the Argentine, who of course plays for their rivals Barcelona, after signing with the Spanish giants in January.

Apparently, the 16-year-old, who is widely regarded as one of the hottest prospects in football, idolised Lionel Messi growing up, and has now said that he prefers Los Blancos’ talisman, Cristiano Ronaldo, over the 27-year-old Argentina captain.

The supposed tweets could have caused a stir in the camp, as the rivalry between the two clubs is one of the biggest in world football.

On the football front, the wonderkid could very well become the youngest player in the history of the Champions League if he features against Schalke in the second-leg of the Round of 16, where Real Madrid hold a 2-0 lead.

If he does play, Odegaard will beat Celestine Babayaro’s record of 16 years and 87 days, by three days - though his inclusion in the Real side for the European competition sparked mass debate, as some fear it may be too early for him to feature in the first team set-up.

The midfielder has played four times for Real Madrid Castilla, scoring one goal.
