15 Year Old Naci Ünüvar Produces Pass Of The Season
At 15 years old most of us are pretty happy if we manage to master passing on the latest FIFA game but Ajax youngster Naci Unuvar seems to have mastered the skill in real life.
‘Remember the name’ has become synonymous with when a young player first makes a massive impression on the big stage, ever since Wayne Rooney introduced himself with the incredible goal from outside of the box against Arsenal in October 2002.
It was a great line in commentary that has been used in talking about other young prospects ever since. On that, it’s probably time to remember the name Naci Unuvar.
Back in September the Ajax youngster became the youngest player to score in the UEFA Youth League when he scored from the spot against AEK Athens in a 6-0 win.
You know someone’s young when they become the youngest person to do something in a competition that is solely for people who are young.
Well if you thought that the 15 year old was just good for slotting the ball away from 12 yards then you’re very much mistaken because he’s bloody good at passing too.
Against Feyenoord’s youth team on Saturday the Dutch midfielder produced one of the best passes you’re likely to see, it’s a shame his teammate didn’t finish it off:
He might only be 15 but as with anyone who shows promise at Ajax Unuvar is already being linked with a move away from Amsterdam.
With Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong the next two academy prospects at Ajax to leave the club in the summer it’s likely you’ll hear a lot about Unuvar in the coming years.
Just remember the name.
