If is de academy, would he need a work visa? Wouldn't that be a student visa kinda situation?
Definitely not a work visa. He's underage as per EU laws. With Levi it was a pre contract agreement until he turned 18 and Levi was 17+.This lad just turned 16 with no ties ie family heritage. But hey, I guess they probably trying to exploit a little known loophole.
christian pulisek played in the bundesliga at 17, where did he got a work permit from?

Benny’s safe ...But fears losing contract opportunity.
By Walter Alibey (Guardian).


Young St Ann’s Rangers midfielder Che Benny is safe at Swedish First Division club AIK (Allmanna Idrottsklubben), but there are now fears the talented 16-year old may lose out on the opportunity to secure a contract there.

Yesterday Benny’s childhood coach (from u-14 to present) Evrett Williams sought to allay fears that the talented central midfielder was lost in transition to the Swedish club, by saying “I talk to Che almost every night and things are going well for him at the club.” Concerns arose due to the manner in which the trial was arranged Williams explained, noting that it was not done via club-to-club transaction but rather through an agent who acted on the advice of Benny’s handlers, that included his mother Nikeisha and uncles.

The left-footed Benny has been with the club for the past 10 days and is expected to play in a match today. He is scheduled to return home on July 21 or 22.

“This is a serious concern for me because as far as I am concerned, it should all be about Che Benny. He is a tremendous talent who emerged from the ghetto of Belmont and is attempting to make something of himself and for his family,” Rocket explained. Rangers owner Richard Fakoory said he is unaware of the player’s whereabouts, although Benny told him that he wanted to go on trial in Sweden.

Rocket, in giving his account of how it transpired, said his handlers reached out to agent Dane Mapp, who operates out of T&T, to arrange a trial for the player. “Being a youth player, Benny is not contracted with Rangers which enabled his handlers to sign with Mapp to source the trial. This means that the Swedish club dealt directly with Mapp and not Rangers, which I can admit was not above board.”

Benny who recently returned more than a week ago from a trip to Manchester United after topping the FLOW Ultimate Football Experience, received a sponsored mileage ticket from an unknown attorney which enabled him to travel to the Swedish club. Accounts of his whereabouts were always known, Rocket said, as he not only received regular updates via video footage from him almost daily, but also kept in contact with the player throughout the entire journey.

Guardian Media Sports also tried to reach Benny’s mother Nikeisha, but calls to her phone went unanswered.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Pulisic got his Croatian citizenship docs -- very quickly too -- from his Croatian grandfather.

I wishing the best for Che, however that Youth Academy sounding like just the kinda scenario that made FIFA come up with Article 19. Seems as if he could sign a pre-contract agreement and join them at 18, a la Levi and AZ Alkmaar.

IMHO, even though the trial was not done in the right way, you as his local coach HAVE TO want what's best for him, no??

American Ben Lederman is also a classic example of this rule being enforced, he was at La Masia since age 11 and had to leave 3 years ago cause of Article 19, he now rejoined them at 16 after getting a Polish passport.

Long story short, when Che impresses them, they'll sign him and he'll come back and continue playing here until he's 18.

Ashford Jackman in town too long for that kinda rookie move man ???

His grandfather was Croatian and he applied for Croatian citizenship. Croatia are part of the European Union. That's how he dodged applying for a German work visa

Benny, Riley endure challenges in pursuit of national pick.
By Walter Alibey (Guardian).


It has been a tale of hard work and sacrifices for Che Benny and Kareem Riley, both attempting to secure a place each on the country's senior national football team under coach Terry Fenwick.

After a session at the St James Barracks on Long Circular Road, the duo spoke highly about the work being done so far by the coach, which the pair believes has been a huge assistance in their personal lives. They have been part of a squad of some 40 players bidding for the right to represent the T&T Soca Warriors at next year's CONCACAF Gold Cup as well as the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers. The qualifiers for both tournaments have been put on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic situation.

Benny, a former youth standout for both school (St Anthony's College) and the country said in an interview that he has had to miss training sessions and do his own personal training because of lack of funds.

"Sometimes I make sacrifices and sometimes I don't. I have no money to travel so I wake up at 6.30 am to get a drop. Training on my own, once again I have to get up early. But it will pay off, I was born with a talent. I just have to work hard on the little ups and downs in my game.

"Some of the things I am learning is to always be focused, be ready when the game is going on. Coach has been telling us to work hard, work hard, work hard. I am a player, who I know, have a lot to do so it's just to get my mental there, and that's what coach Fenwick is doing right now."

Meanwhile, Riley, a strong defensive midfielder, has been shifted to the central defensive position, which is a challenge he said he embraces.

"It's really good working under coach Fenwick. He is very demanding and very tactical in terms of what he wants. He tells us what he wants and also makes us exhibit it as much as possible.

"The training sessions have been really intense so far. I have been deployed into a new position but it's a new experience and a new challenge, so I welcome it."

Riley explained that training during the COVID-19 period is really good, "as it could give us the edge at a time when no other team is actually training now. "

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
