SEB Thompson appears to have the world at his feet.

At just 13, the Royal Grammar School Worcester pupil is one of Liverpool’s hottest prospects and is determined to fulfil his potential.

Ever since Thompson, nicknamed Sebinho due to his Ronaldinho-esque dribbling ability, ran with the ball in his stride, he has attracted interest from some of the biggest clubs on the planet.

Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal are all believed to have tried to snap up Thompson and he has already agreed a deal with Adidas.

But, after pledging his future to Liverpool, the former St Barnabas Primary School and RGS The Grange pupil is now focused on becoming a professional footballer.

“In five years, I want to try and get myself in the first team,” he said.

There is a lot of football to be played before he achieves his dream but the signs look promising for the young attacker.

His talents were first spotted by West Bromwich Albion just shy of his sixth birthday when he played in a half-term soccer camp.

His father Kev said: “He played his first game in a West Brom kit and hadn’t played a proper game of football before, so he didn’t know about corners or throw-ins.

“He was just dribbling with the ball but they saw something in him and said, ‘This kid has got talent’.”

Worcester-born Thompson had spent three years at Aston Villa but last year decided to make a change of clubs.

The youngster, who lives in Bromsgrove, said: “We talked as a family about where would be the right place to go, so I had to take into consideration travelling as well as training and it all had to fit into what I needed.

“At Liverpool, they encouraged what I do and I could see myself there.

“There was a pathway between the academy and the first team, so hopefully I can get as far up that pathway as possible.”

Despite penning a contract at the five-time European Cup champions in August, his parents said Liverpool were still doing their utmost to make sure he stayed at the club.

At the moment, the teenager is enjoying his football at Liverpool and is managing to juggle his school studies with his soccer skills.

But Kev, 47, and mother Shauna, 42, admitted their lives have turned into a “military operation” as they take Seb to and from Liverpool while providing love and support to their nine-year-old daughter Isabelle, who is a talented athlete.

Shauna, who had to quit her job as head of dance at Tudor Grange Academy, said: “A typical day for us is I do the school run while Kev goes to work.

"It’s then back to school for 11am on a school release day and take Seb up to Birmingham to drop him off to Kev.

“He does the rest of the journey to Liverpool. Then I come back to the Grange to get Isabelle and I go back to Birmingham for athletics. It’s manic.”

Kev and Shauna said they admire the way their “well-grounded” son was taking everything in his stride.

“It is hard for him as he has had to grow up quickly,” Shauna said. “But he knows there are people who aren’t as fortunate as him and he is certainly not big-headed.

“He doesn’t brag and that’s what every teacher, coach and parent has always said about Seb.

“I can’t see him ever changing, no matter what he achieves."

Kev added: “All Seb wants to do is entertain people.”
