What you dont know about Leo Messo, A Kenyan wonderkid acquired by Arsenal.
Leo Messo is a British-born wonderkid who has Kenyan ancestry. His football journey began with Little Kickers when he was three years old.
Messo went to a couple of grassroots clubs. Fortunately, he was scouted for West Ham, from there he’s gone to Chelsea and Arsenal and over the last two and a half years he’s been training with those clubs. At that age group, players can play for many clubs.
West Ham desired to keep him, Chelsea fancied him but didn’t offer him a deal. Arsenal offered him a contract that broke headlines across the world.
The wonderkid is both footed, a specialized player who can play on the left, right, and in the middle – he’s very tough in the way he goes about his business on the pitch.
