New Manchester United star Adnan Januzaj was wowing football scouts from an early age and was destroying teams at the age of six.
Alex Silva, a former scout and coach at Januzaj's first club FC Brussels, told the Sun on Sunday about the first time he saw the 18-year-old play in a match that also involved his son David.
"David still talks about it. It was an under-sevens match, we were playing La Louviere and the game finished 22-0. Adnan must have scored 17 or 18 goals. He was incredible.
"David came off the pitch and said, 'Dad, he's much, much too good'.
"Adnan had ball technique, unbelievable for his age. His left foot was extraordinary.
"He was small and very slight but he had will. He was afraid of no one."
Januzaj became an overnight sensation when he scored two goals in Manchester United's 2-1 win over Sunderland.
Born in Belgium to Kosovar Albanian parents, his international future has been subject to much debate with even England expressing a potential interest in naturalising him.
United are keen to tie him down to a new contract with big clubs around Europe expected to be interested if a deal cannot be agreed.
Januzaj joined United from Anderlecht in 2011.
