Noah Shawn, the next great (bayern) player ?


Pernah dengar nama Noah Shawn? Dia adalah salah satu talenta muda sepak bola yang saat ini bermain di FC Bayern München.

Video aksinya mengolah si kulit bundar telah disaksikan ratusan ribu bahkan jutaan kali di Youtube. Bagi yang belum pernah lihat atau sekedar ingin menyegarkan kembali ingatan Anda akan kehebatannya, bisa klik link di bawah ini:

Video-video tersebut diunggah pada tahun 2009 yang lalu saat Noah masih berusia 7 tahun. Lalu dimana Noah sekarang? Masihkah dia bersama FC Bayern? (optional: baca dua pertanyaan tersebut ala pembawa acara2 gosip di tipi :p)

Untuk menjawabnya saya kutip secara penuh hasil interview Bayern Forum dengan Yeliz, ibu dari Noah Shawn.

The mother of the wonderkid wrote:Noah is one out of a million children who loves playing soccer for his life. Whether he is talented or not, Noah was just playing for fun. The experience what we and especially Noah Shawn had with this 2 YouTube clips were differently. Some loved him and wished him luck, other people act very jealous and unfriendly. Actually we don’t want to put him into the public life. So many TV stations and productions wanted to film Noah privately and put him on television, in few words wanted to make money out of him, but we decided to stay distanced because we want him to feel like a child. If he really should become famous then with every part of his and not just for moments when people want to make fast and easy money with him. Even when almost the whole world knows him already, he is still a totally natural child with a very normal life. Noah goes to school every day and we the parents go to work to earn our money to live a normal life! We always have stress to bring him to his training three times per week we work all day. But we try our best that he can be lucky and good in soccer!

BayernForum.com: Is he still considered a major talent by fans and coaches alike?
Noah Shawn’s mum: Yes :)

Jika wawancara ini benar, maka setidaknya sampai saat ini, Bayern sangat beruntung punya talenta muda berbakat seperti dia. Setidaknya ada tiga hal yang perlu terus dilakukan manajemen Bayern Muenchen:

1. Menjaganya agar tidak berpindah ke klub lain… I mean, Arsene must have already noticed this talented kid :p

2. Bersama keluarga Noah, Bayern perlu menjaga dia dari eksploitasi media yang berlebihan, yang bisa membuat mentalitas Noah rusak. Dan sukurlah, ibunda Noah sudah aware akan bahaya ini.

3. Terus melatihnya dengan porsi latihan yang sesuai. Untuk hal ini, saya tak meragukan para pelatih Bayern, termasuk di tim junior.

At last, kita berharap Noah bisa menjadi pemain sepak bola yang hebat karirnya, tidak stuck. Banyak pemain yang ketika junior dikabarkan akan menjadi sangat hebat, namun kenyataannya tak seindah penggambaran media ketika mereka masih kecil atau junior. Sebut saja nama-nama seperti Landon Donovan, Freddy Adu, Robinho, Adriano, Bojan, Sebastian Deisler dan masih banyak lagi.

Jika semuanya berjalan lancar, kita bisa melihat Noah dengan jersey Bayern di tim senior in 2018 or 2019😀
