After becoming the first player born this millennium to appear in a match in one of Europe’s big five leagues last season, 17-year-old Juventus forward Moise Kean is already making hay in Serie A. Moise’s father, however, is upset at Juve for hampering his ability to make rice and corn back in Ivory Coast by not yet buying Papa Kean the tractors he claims were part of the terms of his son’s contract.

Here’s what the elder Kean told Tuttosport about the contractual dispute, as translated by the Independent:

“Juventus offered a contract of €700,000-a-year, which was fine, but the problem is they had also promised me some tractors for my agricultural business in the Ivory Coast, but now they say there is no budget for them,” Kean’s father told Tuttosport.

“I’ve got several hectares of land in the Ivory Coast which I would like to cultivate with rice and corn.

“I asked for this agricultural machinery and they told me there wouldn’t be any problems, but now things have changed.”


I can’t wait to offer Scott Palmer from Iowa $4,000 a week and two combine harvesters to sign his first pro contract with Rayo Vallecano in next year’s Football Manager.
