What you dont know about Leo Messo

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.


The 8-year-old Leo Messo became an overnight sensation after he made headings around the world on Wednesday afternoon when a video was reposted of the youngster being recruited at Hale End, where he was conferred with his own mock FIFA Ultimate Team card.

With his name just similar to Lionel Messi, Leo Messo’s recruitment just caught fire.

The youngster becomes the latest African player to join the north London club, following in the steps of among others, Nigeria duo Chuba Akpom and Alex Iwobi, and Ghanaian Eddie Nketiah, who all graduated from the revered Hale End.

Leo Messo was pictured alongside the Gunners academy manager Per Mertesacker and they posed together with a No 9 shirt that beared his name.

Arsenal supporters will be dreaming Messo isn’t the only new face at the Emirates ahead of next season as the club continues to grapple under the guidance of Mikel Arteta
