So I stumbled across this thing, and couldn't help but share it.

Baerke van der Meij is only 1-and-a-half years old, but the toddling soccer prodigy has already signed a contract with Dutch soccer club Venlose Voetbal Verenigingv on the basis of a YouTube video alone (see above).

OK, so it’s just a “symbolic contract,” but still.

“The toddler’s favourite position has not yet been determined,” VVV Venlo said in a press release. “However, we can speak of a right-footed player with a very good kicking technique, perseverance and, importantly: football genes via his grandfather, (a former professional soccer player).”

Check out the kid's mad skills!
