Have Arsenal got the next Lionel Messi on their hands? It’s impossible to know. But if 15-year-old Trae Coyle can mimic the Barcelona legend’s game like he can his penalty shenanigans then Arsenal are on to a winner.

Coyle is going viral for following Messi’s lead and passing his penalty to a teammate in an U16 game. Barca did it successfully at the weekend in the 6-1 over Celta Vigo and it led people to ask why more players don’t try it.

The starlet’s inspired experiment was rewarded. See it in the video below.
