NextGenWatch: Seyi Ojo, Liverpool FC

The highly talked about and highly rated Oluwaseyi (Seyi) Ojo began his career with MK Dons academy, playing for the Buckinghamshire based club from the age of 10.

During his time with the Dons, Ojo played a number of age groups above himself, even playing with the U18’s and training with the first team at the tender age of 13. In his U14’s season, he gained further attention after impressive performances with England’s U16’s, so much so that a number of English clubs showed an interest in him. At the age of 14, Ojo made the move north to sign for Premier League club Liverpool.

He is now in his second season with the Merseyside club and continues to develop, again playing in groups above his age. Noticeably his performance against Wolves FC U18’s recently when the attacking midfielder scored, assisted and won a penalty (see video below).

A versatile player who is technically and mentally strong enough to play all over the pitch, with the ability to keep the ball in tight areas, beat players with ease, pick out a finely placed pass – and best of all he is already involved within the England’s youth teams.
