Fame and fortune can be a gift, but can equally be considered a curse.
Many young footballers who find fame early in their careers struggle to fulfil their potential, and are often seen more on the front headlines, than the back headlines, where they should be making their name.
Scottish striker, Islam Feruz, is one of these.
Islam first made the news when he swapped Glasgow for London, after moving to Chelsea’s academy set up from Celtic, but since that big move, things have not gone the way of the Somali born player.
Feruz was touted as one of the brightest talents in the country, but a series of failed loan move have halted the progress of the child prodigy.
Five clubs have now cut loan spells short, and the underlying problem seems to be the 21-year-old’s attitude.
This came to a head in January, when Feruz was fined £3000 for driving an £80,000 Porsche while disqualified, and this brush with the law has only gone towards furthering questioning the striker’s desire.
Currently on loan at relegated Swindon, Islam needs to start bucking up his ideas, and fulfilling the God given potential give to him.
Many across the land would kill for the opportunity he has been afforded, and after arriving in Scotland with his family as a refugee, things could have been so different for the young man.
Next season could be the most defining of his career so far.
A good year out on loan may be the making of him, another failed venture and Chelsea might cut him loose.
One club that might take the chance on the unpredictable youngster is, League One side, MK Dons.
The Dons have a knack for nurturing young talent, with the likes of Brendan Galloway and the almost world class, Dele Alli, coming through the ranks at Stadium:MK.
Robbie Neilson is a manager who could get the best out of the player, and if he can harness the raw talent which earned Feruz a move to Chelsea in the first place, the club could have a gem on their hands.
Next year is make or break for the young striker, and a successful loan move to Milton Keynes could be the catalyst for his development into a quality player.
