Malaysian youngster to play in Italy

IT came as a pleasant surprise to read Bernama's report of an Italian-Malaysian Sean Gan Giannelli who is set to join Italian Club Atletico Arezzo's Under-17 team in the Tuscany region come Monday.

The 15 -year-old, is in fact a student of Bukit Jalil Sports School and trains and plays with the Under-17 Bukit Jalil squad.
   
His father, Massimo was proud of his son's progress in the sport as he is the first Malaysian to enter Italy's youth football club system after attending trials in June.
 
"He is a very ambitious young man and his goal in life is to play professional football at the highest level in Europe and from what he has achieved so far, the sky is the limit," he told Bernama, adding that he was now making preparations for Sean's stay in Italy.
  
He said Sean, a striker, impressed with his pace and technical skills at Arezzo, a Serie D club now led by head coach Abel Balbo, a former Argentinian national player who had played alongside soccer legend Maradona. 

Balbo, who had scored 150 goals in Italy's Serie A as a striker, had played with AS Roma, Udinese, Fiorentina, Parma and Boca Juniors.

Among the other Malaysian youngsters who are playing abroad include Nazmi Faiz Mansor (Portugal), Wan Zack Haikal Wan Noor and Wan Zaharulnizam Zakaria (Japan).
