Caden Clark is clearly one of the youngest talents of the MLS. Aged 17, the offensive midfielder show his talent to the world in his debut with New York RB a week ago. Against Atlanta United, the player scored the unique goal of the match and gave his team the victory. But, just four day afterwards, he did it again, scoring against Toronto FC.

With two goals in his first two matches, Clark is the youngest player from the MLS to score in his first two appearances. His first experience in soccer was at Minnesota Thunder and before playing for New York RB he was part of an FC Barcelona Academy. From the age of 14 until 17 he trained with Barcelona branch Academy and even travelled to play in La Masía for some weeks.

Barça has eleven Academies only in the U.S. and Clark played for the one in Arizona, being the third MLS player, after Bryce Duke y Julian Araujo, to train there. After all, Barcelona decided not to contract him, as it is made with the majority of the kids from the Academys, and he signed with New York RB.


Clark gave his team a very important win in the last part of the regular season, as Toronto are the leaders of the Eastern Conference and New York RB are fighting for a place in the playoffs zone.
