Spanish Football Club Choses 12 Year Old  Student to Receive Professional TrainingXue Zhaohan a 12 year old Shenzhen primary school student of Yucai No. 1 Primary School is one lucky kid after being chosen by Spain’s Valencia Football Club to receive a three year professional training under their wing. Xue was selected due to his outstanding performance in a local soccer program that was organized by the Chinese Football Association and the Wanda Group to help find elite players to be trained professionally in Spain.

Liu Jing the boy’s mother said that she was shocked rather than excited in hearing the news on his son being chosen and remained hesitant in accepting the invitation in fear the Xue might get lonely while he is training aboard. One of Xue’s classmates has also been chosen to train in another club but his parents refused believing that it might be a hindrance in their child’s development.

Xue is not worried and is confident that he will have a good future and he promises his parents to give them a good future. At first the family didn’t want to indulge him into soccer, but Xue showed such maturity beyond his years. Xue and his father made a trip to Spain to scout the team and after several considerations finally enlisted with the club.

Xue will fly to Spain in August to spend three years in training with the club and he will be allowed to visit his family once a year.
