Even though Coran Madden is only 14 years old, the striker is already being touted for a bright future across the pond.

In addition to his visit to the Red Devils, the youngster will also undergo a trial with Newcastle United.

The native of west Belfast has risen through the ranks of Cliftonville’s burgeoning academy, having joined the club at the age of six.

This has been stated.


The club’s Head of Youth, Marc Smyth, has lauded the teenager from Belfast as the “best young talent in the country.”

According to him, it is not surprising that numerous Premier League clubs are monitoring the adolescent.

“Coran is 14 years old and possesses exceptional aptitude. He can play the number 10, the left wing, and the right flank – essentially anywhere across the front line, according to Smyth.

“He is the most promising youthful talent in the nation. He won player of the tournament at this summer’s SuperCupNI while representing County Antrim.

“Coran has been with us since he was six years old, and he is a tremendously gifted musician. And now numerous organizations are pursuing him.Every Premier League club has inquired about him, but under the new restrictions he can only choose two clubs per year. Coran has consequently selected Manchester United and Newcastle United.

“Manchester City, Liverpool, Everton, and other clubs such as Southampton and Leicester City were also interested in our services. He is such a talented athlete.

“He is also the most modest child you will ever encounter. He possesses all of the desirable qualities off the field: he is polite and diligent.

“On the field, he is very direct, capable of going both ways, has two excellent feet, and most importantly, he is incredibly intelligent.

“He has reaped the benefits of joining our academy at a young age, as he reads the game so well.”
Context Cliftonville’s academy has enabled a multitude of young players to advance to senior football and earn transfers across the pond.

The most recent prominent example is Sean Moore, a former Liverpool sensation who joined West Ham United this summer.

“If you look at Cliftonville’s current first-team, you will see that Stephen McGuinness, Odhran Casey, Gerard Storey, and the Hales brothers (Ronan and Rory) are all academy products. “Sean Moore’s summer transfer to West Ham United is the most recent success story,” said Smyth.

“In our next cohort, the younger players, we have Ollie McCart, who plays for Derby County, and this kid (Coran), who is the country’s Golden Child in his age group.

“The Sean Moore one was incredible because Sean came through, and Liam McStravick and Chris Watson brought him through from perhaps 12s on up.” Coran is likely even more significant because he was the first player to participate in the academy’s inaugural season.

“When I assumed this position, we dropped to Under 6.” We started a skills school, and I began the FonaCab League for Under-6 teams to compete here.

“There are now 200 participants in this. And Coran was one of the first children to survive it.

“He went from being six years old to the country’s Golden Child. Listen, he has a ways to go, but he is so talented that he should succeed.”
When asked why the youngster and his family selected Manchester United and Newcastle United, Smyth responded, “I believe those clubs sold Coran and his family on their vision.” We can only advise them on what we believe would be best for the child and his family.

“In addition, what would assist the child off the field? His father is a Liverpool devotee, so he has no allegiance to either club.

“Manchester United and Newcastle United are two of the biggest clubs in England, and they wanted to move the player’s family over.

“Clubs from all over the world were intrigued in Coran. With the new regulations, it is somewhat embarrassing to say, “We appreciate your interest, but we cannot accept your offer.”

However, he still possesses these marvelous opportunities. Coran will visit each club to determine whether he enjoys it or not, and he will obviously have a trial, after which things will progress.

“He has a long way to go, but it’s wonderful that he’s receiving this recognition.”
