Manchester United invite teen who grew up in brothel for trial
THE poverty-stricken son of a sex worker is going from red light to Red Devil - after being offered a dream trial with Manchester United. Rajib Roy, 16, will be flying to the UK on April 25 to train with the Premier League side's academy team, after impressing scouts. The teenager has endured a tough childhood - even by India's standards - growing up in a brothel in Kolkata's notorious Sonagachi neighbourhood. The neighbourhood is home to over 12,000 sex workers and a mere visit to the area is considered taboo. Rajib was relentlessly bullied because of his mother's profession and now attends Rahul Vidya Niketan in Sealdah, a special school for the children of sex workers. Rajib will be attending a 10-day training session with Manchester United and given a tour of Old Trafford, known as the Theatre of Dreams.
