West Brom youngster Shaun Donnellan struggles with simple maths question

West Brom

Footballers are a clever bunch...

Now we know footballers have a reputation for being a bit... dim, but this West Bromwich Albion youngster has taken it to another level. 

The baggies are on tour in America and got a right stuffing from Brazilian legend Kaka the other night after losing to Orlando City 3-1. If you haven't been keeping up with Gareth McAuley's pre-season tour diary (it's been a thrilling watch...), you may have missed the Northern Irishman giving youngster Shaun Donnellan the easiest maths question you could imagine.

McAuley asks: "If I travel 80 miles at 80 mph..."

Which Donnellan quickly replies to with: "I'm already lost..." (skip to 3 mins 5 seconds)

Oh dear, for Donnellan's sake let's hope he makes it in football or gets his maths GCSE, otherwise he might be in a bit of trouble when it comes to a career path. 

Maybe he should take a leaf out of Frank Lampard's book and get 11 A's in GCSE's and have a better IQ than Carol Vorderman.
