A 17-Year-Old Rising U.S. Soccer Star Has Signed With An English Premier League Team

Marc Pelosi, U.S. soccer player


Marc Pelosi is a rising star for the United States on the international soccer scene. Unfortunately, American soccer has little to offer the 17-year-old midfielder at the moment to elevate his game.

So he’s heading across the pond to join Liverpool’s academy set-up after signing with the English Premier club.¬†

“We’re determined to identify the best possible talent globally and I’m delighted we’ve been able to bring Marc in to the club,” academy director Frank McParland told the club’s official website.

Although German-born, Pelosi has played 28 times for the USA Under-17 club, scoring eight goals and captaining his squad in this summer’s youth-level FIFA World Cup.
