To have built the reputation in soccer that he has and have an already distinguished career is quite a feat for 23 in any sport. We can hope that not only has he started young but he will have a long career to boot.
He is young for sure but I am amazed as some of the things he has done in his time around already. Its almost shock to see someone of that age be well mannered, awesome at their trade and still end up being so determined.
Most amazing I think is to think that at just 23 years old he has spent more than half of his life in football. He was signed by Everton at just 11 years old and has been going ever since, and the youngest goal scorer in the history of the premier league.
The guy is pretty amazing.
