Nine months ago, BayernForum.com held an exclusive interview with Noah Shawn’s mother, who for whoever doesn’t know is a sensational talent in the junior team. We have now been in touch with his mother once again to get some updates on the 10-year old wonderkid.
Noah Shawn became an internet sensation, when videos of the then 7-year old dancing his way round multiple opponents with incredible technique went viral. Many people have since asked: what has happened to him?
Do not hit the panic button; Noah Shawn is still very much a Bayern Munich player. This season he is playing with the Bayern Munich Under-11 Junior Team, but as from next season he will start playing for the FC Bayern U12s.
Contrary to his last season in the U10s, where he was used as a left winger, this season he is being played on the right wing, Yeliz, his mother revealed. And then she told us something which perhaps which may come as a disappointment to some of you, but which should not really come as a surprise:
“He is doing well but everybody who knows him from the beginning, like when he was 6 and 7 say that the way he plays totally changed with the years. And when you watch the videos and watch Noah Shawn right now you wont say that is the same child. FC Bayern prepared him to a totally different somehow usual player. He is still good in technical and you can see that. But you will not really see a lot of tricks when he plays.”
This of course means that Noah is learning the other skills in football, which are equally important. Football is not just about running rings around your opponents, and a player needs to know when he should pass or cross. Will he be a complete player one day? We’ll just have to wait and see, maybe in about seven or eight years’ time. In the meantime, we’ll try to keep bringing you updates, exclusively by BayernForum.com!
