There are footballers who cannot deny or disguise their genes. Julen Jon Guerrero Landabaso (Bilbao, 2004) has the same leonine mane of his father, the historical Julen Guerrero, La Perla de Lezama, his class and seems destined like him to succeed in this football. Comes stomping on Factory and to show a button: This past Tuesday he made his debut with the white Juvenil A in the UEFA Youth League and scored the Sheriff in the first ball that came close to him. He had only been on the grass for three minutes.
It is the young man Junior Warrior more a ten that a Eight like his father and comes in this version 2.0 with a new weapon: he is left-handed. A spectacular project of a good footballer (he measures 1.86 meters) who shortly after landing in Valdebebas had the privilege of being able to say that He was part of the first promotion of players led by coach Raúl, three seasons ago in Cadet B white.
In Bilbao they are very aware of Julen Jon although they have never been able to enjoy him. The boy started his career at Málaga, where warrior dad at that time he was working in the lower categories and where he got to be elected best footballer in Andalusia at the age of 12. By then already It was common to see Julen record his son with a camera or mobile phone, and then go over details of the match with him. The stroke of fortune for Real Madrid was the offer of the Spanish Federation to the former international to become coach of the U-15 and U-16 National Team. That move from Malaga to Las Rozas also led to Julen Jon’s move to Madrid … and to Real Madrid. Also his presence in the National Team, where he debuted in the U-15 with a premonitory double and now he has been part of the U-18 that Pablo Amo directs.
Able to be Pichichi …
In Valdebebas he is liking (“He has a great facility for scoring and is a modern southpaw, he knows how to handle the other leg if necessary”, they say at home) and he is a year above his age. Last season he started it in Juvenil C but ended up being the Pichichi of Juvenil B with nine goals in 14 games. In this he has been enrolled in Juvenil B but the plan is that he will be seen in Juvenil A by Hernán Pérez. His first shot was at the Sheriff. With Julen Sr., as always, in the stands.
