The 17 year old English midfielder of Crewe Alexandra George Cooper is turning heads around with a string of impressive performances that has helped his League One club in securing a few victories but the coach, Steve Davis wants to keep Cooper on a low key and avoid attracting the attention of scouters or other clubs.

George Cooper at the age of 17 has already managed to prove his worth at the big stage as he is a regular performer for Crewe Alexandra in the main team and has even scored sublime free-kick goals with his goal against Coventry City a few days ago being an example of what the young player is capable of doing.

One of the latest league matches of Crewe Alexandra was against Coventry City where George Cooper made his first start at Gresty Road and what a way to make his debut in the home turf of his club as he scored the 2nd goal of his team at the 32nd minute which secured the victory for Crewe Alexandra with a splendid free-kick.

Coventry City never really managed to get back in the game and ultimately lost 2-1.

The manager of Crewe Alexandra, Steve Davis wants to keep George Cooper on the low key and avoid attracting unnecessary attention towards the young player as this can build pressure to the midfielder who only is 17 years old.

“We have to realize how early into his career he is and not spoil him. I’m not going to build him up in the Press to be a superstar, even though I’ve already said he has an influence because he takes our free-kicks and corners.  What George has got to do is concentrate on getting into the team and nothing else, just doing well enough in the week to earn his place on the Saturday, and then perform to the level he’s shown. The rest looks after itself’’

“We can’t control the scouting, and what other clubs see in him, but he’s been talked about for a while now.”  Crewe Alexandra’s Steve Davis told the media.
