Spain: Dani Olmo: The footballer making big decisions since the age of 16

Spain‘s stuttering start to their World Cup qualification campaign was jolted into life thanks to Dani Olmo‘s 92nd-minute winner over Georgia.

It wasn’t the first time that Olmo, a key member of Luis Enrique’s side, has had to keep a cool head in a critical moment; after all, he has been doing this since the age of 16.

Although he was the top scorer in his age group at Barcelona‘s academy, a lack of a coherent vision laid out by the Blaugrana led Olmo to join Croatian giants Dinamo Zagreb.

“Going to Zagreb at 16 could sound surreal, but I certainly chose that option,” Olmo told ABC last week.

After arriving on the promise of an important role at Dinamo Zagreb, within two years, whilst training with the first team once a week, he had soon broken into the first team and soon became a regular fixture.

In short order, he was a European under-21 champion with Spain before making his full debut in Robert Moreno’s side.

With his father Miguel and agents Juanma Lopez and Andy Bara at his side, Olmo made the move in January 2020 to RB Leipzig, where he is now a pivotal member of a side competing with Bayern Munich for the Bundesliga title.

Dani Olmo is a star for club and country and, as ever, he is doing it his way.
