At youth age, you occasionally find a player who is much bigger than their opponents.

Take Romelu Lukaku for example.

The Belgian forward looked like a grown man when he emerged for Anderlecht's first team at the tender age of 16.

It was his height and strength that meant he was able to compete in Belgium's top tier, scoring 19 goals in 45 appearances before his 17th birthday.

And he was also huge at the age of 13.

An image has previously gone viral of Lukaku towering over both his opponent and the referee... at just 13 years old.

View that image below:

And it appears one player in Sevilla's youth academy is enjoying a height advantage similar to what Lukaku once enjoyed.

Sevilla's U12s played in the Ciutat Esportiva group stage against Villarreal on Friday.

And Villarreal posted images of the game, one of which showed one of Sevilla's players, Ibrahima Sow, completely towering over one of their own players.

View it below:

La Liga also got involved on Instagram.

They uploaded an image of the same player, with the caption 'big man'.

They also joked that his teammate was his 'son'.

What are they feeding this kid?!

Funnily enough, that was the exact same question that a fan asked Sevilla's Twitter page after seeing the image.

And they preferred to keep their cards close to their chest, joking that it was a 'club secret'.

According to Marca, Sow is above 1.75m tall at only 12 years old.

The youngster was born in Senegal and moved to Sevilla two years ago from Malaga.

His technical ability is described as 'neat' and is one of the 'great pearls' in Sevilla's youth team.

Sow has scored 29 times this year for his side and many at Sevilla are 'convinced' he will make the jump to professional football.

We wish the youngster the best of luck as he bids to make a name for himself in the future.
