You'd hope that riding in a Porsche might have him in a better mood. But maybe he's just wary of the man driving for him. Russians and cheerful do not go together, do they? (Image: imgur.com)

According to official reports, Valencia's academy is the fifth-best in all of Europe. The reason they're there is because they attract talent like this South Korean prodigy. They spot their talent young and nurture them into world-class athletes. This midfielder is surely on course to becoming one of the best. Born in Incheon, South Korea, he moved to Valencia when he was just ten. His parents made the journey too. His earliest experience in a club set up was with Incheon United. He also spent a few years at Flyings FC. The youngest ever Korean to play in a Champions League game, this lad made his first-team debut for the club in 2018. Capable of playing on either wing, he is an agile player that can dribble out of situations with ease. He's also a playmaker with great vision. However, his passing powers could still use a bit of boost up, and he is expected to push further to develop in areas that he lacks in. This player is also known as a long shot taker, and if he works on his finishing, he could become a goal threat as well. This teenager has already debuted for South Korea's senior team. He is a member of their Under-20 side too and has won numerous individual honors in his home country including the FIFA U-20 World Cup Golden Ball, AFC Youth Player of the Year, and the Korean Young Footballer of the Year awards for the year 2019.
