A Dutch Soccer Club Just Signed A Toddler to a Deal

No, unfortunately, we're not joking.


Yeah, we know. This is basically the publicity stunt of all publicity stunts. But, fuck it: We'll bite. Dutch soccer team VVV-Venlo recently inked a 1-year-old boy to a 10-year contract after a viral video hit the 'net that shows him kicking a small soccer ball into a toy chest. "The toddler's favourite position has not been determined," VVV-Venlo said in a press release shortly after the signing. "However, we can speak of a right-footed player with a very good kicking technique, perseverance, and, importantly: football genes via his grandfather." In that case, how long until Becks' unborn child gets a deal, too? [via theScore]
