  • KC 10-year-old signs with Roma

    "In the south of Kansas City on a corner of 43rd Avenue there is an Italian restaurant called Cupini’s. Eddie Cupini and his father, Franco, have dedicated nearly 15 years to serving the best pasta in town – “Just like my mom used to make,” says Franco – and earning a few awards along the way. But soon they will be leaving behind the restaurant and the life they have built in America.

    Eddie’s 10-year-old son, Alessandro, has signed up to Roma’s esteemed academy. Alessandro is something of a social media sensation with more than 40,000 followers on Instagram and a dedicated YouTube channel showcasing his prodigious talent, all managed by his father. He even has a nickname: The Wolf. “A lion and a tiger are mean but you can’t take a wolf to the circus,” Eddie explains."

    Somehow the MLS will find a way to contort him into a home grown player for SKC if he fails to live up to serious Euro league play and has to come back to MLS.

      My opinion on this development is that Cupini's chicken pesto sammich is good.

        This kid better not go play for Italy’s national team.

            Honestly, this is what the US needs to be able to compete (or at least qualify for a WC); any American kids that look like they have talent are better served entering into a good academy overseas. Glad that Tim Weah is in PSG's academy.
