FORMER UWA Nedlands FC player Ethan Teo (13) has made the last 16 in trials for Paris Saint Germain (PSG) FC’s junior academy.

Teo has played with UWANFC since Joeys Soccer, and was most recently part of the Under-13s Division 1 side and won the Luca Cardoso award in 2015 for his fantastic ethic and attitude.

Teo’s family moved to Paris at the end of last year and he has been playing for local club U.S. Croissy, competing in La Ligue Paris ile-de-France.

He also represented the British School of Paris team that won the Albion Cup, a competition against the other international schools in the Paris area.

Mark Lee, Teo’s coach at Pro Football Training and Christ Church Grammar School, said his recent achievements were an accurate reflection of his hard work and dedication.

“Ethan is a wonderful young man with excellent standards on and off the pitch,” Lee said.

“He will have had a wonderful experience at PSG which will make him a better footballer and be a highlight of what we hope will be a long and enjoyable football journey.”

PSG’s junior academy has produced players such as Nicolas Anelka, current PSG player Adrian Rabiot and Bayern Munich star Kingsley Coman.
