I'm surprised he hasn't joined a development academy team


The same question I was asking myself, he could join any academy in the US. But I know for a fact he is very loyal to his team and coach.

Typical English comments about him. "He hasn't developed physically at all." At least they have the sense to acknowledge his skills.

I guarantee you the English would never have taken Messi into one of their academies because he was small. This is why England will continue to fail at the international level.


esp funny when you see him brush off a kid who's got maybe 3 to 4 inches on him.

Pineda, a 16-year-old high school junior, was told by the coaches at the Nike Academy that he was too small and not physically developed enough to compete with the European development clubs that the academy team was facing. Pineda was often seven or eight years younger than his opponents. All but one other player on the Nike team was in their early 20s too.

All in all, if we follow the entire paragraph, The reviews were pretty good

Really good article on Pineda, check it out: http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/soccer/2...

Hope this kid goes to Europe, more so to Spain were his technical abilities will be utilized the best. And not wasted in college were the game is way more physical..

Amirgy is in Spain right now with Villarreal, most likely a trial. If they offer him a contract, he would be playing with Akale next season. Thing is he also plays in that num 10 playmaker role. But I've seen him play out wide plenty if times as he did at the Nike academy, shouldn't be a problem. Article I posted said he also has trials with A. Madrid and Malaga later on.
