The Liverpool Wonderkid Tipped To Be The Next Messi

Meet Arat Hosseini, he is six years old, boasts a 6 pack like Cristiano Ronaldo and has long hair that would have you thinking he is a girl, but young Arat is blessed with ‘shugela’ and is working to be football’s next best discovery.

There has to be something particularly special about you when the great Lionel Messi sits up and takes note.

In recent Instagram post, the Barca ace mentioned that he sees “a lot of class” in the Iranian kid who resides in Liverpool.

There have been countless kids who were dubbed to be the ‘next Messi’ over the years however, many of them failed to live up to that billing. Arat however, seems to be the real deal if his Instagram and YouTube videos are anything to go by.

Like Messi, he is left-footed, boasts a bag full of tricks, and loves the number 10.

It is little wonder that the kid boasts more than three million followers on Instagram who are privy to his tricks, flicks and workout drills on a daily basis.

When pitted against kids his own age, the diminutive Arat stands out and often leaves his compatriots in his gaze. It is unofficial if the young prodigy is signed to an academy or a professional club, but with skills like that, it won’t be long before we see the kid snapped up, perhaps he’ll sign his first contract on a napkin.

Check out some of his stuff here:


Do you think Arat has what it takes to be the next big star?
