Photo: Limerick sign Neymar lookalike Barry Cotter
League of Ireland defences will have a fright when they come up against Limerick next season.
That’s because they’ve just signed a 16-year-old who’s a dead ringer for a Barcelona superstar.
Not content with being a rhyming couplet for Harry Potter, young striker Barry Cotter also happens to be Neymar’s doppelganger.
Cotter goes straight into the Shannonsiders’ under-17 team, where he is hoping to be even more prolific than his illustrious lookalike.
He told the Limerick website: “I’m looking for a top-three finish, and on goals I’m looking to score at least one or two in each game for the rest of the season.”
