In 10 years, if you hear the name Hosseini making headlines on ESPN in the game of football, don’t let it bother you too much. Chances are you’d probably witness the next big name in global sports, somewhat similar to Argentinian superstar, Leonel Messi.
At just 7 years of age, videos of the little Iranian magician, Arat Hosseini, have gone viral on Instagram, showcasing his exciting dribbling skills and the way he’s dancing around scores of struggling defenders as they try to rid him of the ball.
The boy’s father, Hosseini Sr. has been sharing videos of his son for years and his page has garnered some 5.6 million followers ever since.
Besides the normal fanbase with slightly bereft overtures of affection, Arat Hosseini is also being followed by big names such as Leonel Messi and Novak Djokovic.
