Flashback: Name This ‘Baller As A Boy

Anyone else finding it hard to string together coherent thoughts together today? Not to mention, our manicures need manicures after hitting refresh on the live transfer update sites.

Anyone correctly guess Sergio ‘Kun’ Aguero?

No?

Neither did we. Until we saw the second of these collect pics of the player in the infancy of his careerĀ at Independiente football club in Buenos Aires.

But Aguero was a total cutie, right?

Further BG: He joined the team from age 9, when he lived in a slum-like community in the outskirts of the Argentinian capital, and flew through the ranks to have his first team debut at the record breaking age of 15. He left the club in 2006 to play for Atletico Madrid before transferring to Manchester City in 2011.

    When I saw the first picture, I was like I HAVE NO IDEA! But the second picture is definitely all levels of Aguero.
