There was an interview in a Finnish newspaper about Lauri couple of days ago. I have translated some bits which might be interesting:
Liverpool Academy scout Ian Barrigan doesn't save any compliments when he describes former JIPPO player Dalla Valle who moved to England in January.
"I would say he is the most natural finisher in the history of our academy. Everybody are talking about how many goals he has scored"
(he has scored 11 goals in as many games)
"Lauri has only once failed to score in U17 matches but apart from that it was his best game here"
Lauri trains with U18 team but has mainly played with lads one year younger than that because the striker of that team has been injured for a long time.
"He must play as an out and out striker even though his best position is behind the main striker"
Other comments were like
"Even though being such young he realises the importance of right diet and Lauri has the best physique in the whole academy"
"his attitude is very professional as is the case with all the finns (well I'm writing this while working
When asked about his weaknesses, both Barrigan and Piet Hamberg replied practically at the same time saying he needs to get better on one on one situations and get more brave to take on oppositions.
I just hope all those nice things said are true.
