Dutch football club VVV Venlo sign a todller to a 10-year professional contract. (Hes only 18month old)

How adorable is 18-month-old Baeke van der Meij?

Baeke’s parents uploaded a video of the toddler kicking a football. The video caught the attention of Dutch football club VVV Venlo who decided to sign the todller to a 10-year professional contract.

The soccer club has called the contract a “symbolic” one! Not to mention, the contract brought good press to the team who is fighting relegation.

The best part about this story is, the todler couldn’t sign his contract and had to scribble on a piece of paper. How cute is that?

“The toddler’s favorite position has not yet been determined. However, we can speak of a right-footed player with a very good kicking technique, perseverance and, importantly, football genes via his grandfather.”

The toddler’s grandfather played for the club, and the family still lives in the city of Venlo.

This just goes to show you that Youtube has changed everything. Soccer moms all over the world are going to upload videos of their kids doing all sorts of tricks.
