Jack Brown, Indonesian Kid Tops Manchester United Soccer School

The soccer fans in our nation might not be familiar with the name Jack Brown. However, that’s not the case for the Red Devils’ manager, Sir Alex Ferguson. This 11-year-old boy, who was born in Indonesia, had successfully won ‘The World Final Skill Test 2012 Manchester United Soccer School’ award.

The son of Indah and Lance Brown had previously won a myriad of achievements. “Every summer, Jack and his brother always sign up for football summer camps both in the UK and Indonesia,” said Jack’s mother, Indah Brown, to Reuters London.

In July 2012, Jack and his brother George Brown were enrolled in summer camp MUSS (MU Soccer School) Singapore. Their training was held in Senayan, Jakarta, with around 250 participants aged between 6-16 years. “During that time, Jack successfully attained the highest score of 600 points,” said Indah.

According to Indah, her son was selected as a winner, along with five others. A total of six winners will be matched again in Singapore. However, Jack can immediately play at the MUSS Old Trafford in October 2012 since his score was exceptionally good.

In Dubai, Jack was selected twice as the Best Player of the Year of Sony Tournament at Al Rashid Elementary School, Nad Al Sheba 2010 and Dubai English Speaking School Tournament 2011. In addition, he was also awarded as the Best Midfielder 2012 at IFA Tournament.

Comments from Kaskus:


Total salute! Mantap, that Indonesia can produce such a great soccer player.


Superb superb… Waiting for the first Manchester United player from Indonesia.


Oh well, he won’t become a soccer superstar.


I’m not certain that he will still remember Indonesia when he becomes a successful soccer player.


In reality, there are many Indonesian soccer players that play well… It’s all in the hands of PSSI [Football Association Of Indonesia] to take advantage of these players and not to only protect its own self-interest or group.


Hopefully his talent and skill will keep on growing.


If I have a child, I would want my kid to be a national team player who brings honor to Indonesia.


Don’t go back home, kid [from England]… What would you do in Indonesia…


While some people are embarrassed to admit their own nationality, this boy proudly states nationalism. SALUTE JACK!!!


Typical Indonesian kid. When younger (in primary school) is superb but might change for the worse in high school…


Hopefully he will become a top-quality player who won’t forget about Indonesia.


Not only his mom, I’m also proud of this kid!

Do you think the kid will remember Indonesia when he grow up? Should he be expected to?
