EXCLUSIVE: Twelve year old Aussie starlet Panos Armenakas has been signed by AC Milan as a guest player for the Italian super-club’s U/13 side.
Armenakas, from Sydney (pictured centre), flew off earlier this week to join his teammates for a two week stint. During a fortnight with the Rossoneri, the attacker will turn out for AC in a junior tournament in Portugal.
The youngster is a regular student at the AC Milan academy in Sydney where he's been mentored by coaches Andrea Icardi (ex-AC Milan) and Misha Radovic (ex-Red Star Belgrade).
Radovic acknowledged the quality of the Aussie junior describing his talents as "rare" and likened his style to that of former AC Milan favourite Dejan Savicevic.
"It's a great honour for an Aussie junior to be asked by AC Milan to guest with their U/13s," Radovic told au.fourfourtwo.com today.
The player is due back in Australia in early April.
