Manchester City youngster Enes Ünal is currently on loan at Belgium side Genk and the time spent away from his family has forced him to stop relying on his mothers cooking and start developing his own culinary skills.
Ünal was obviously chuffed with the progress he has shown in the kitchen and shared a number of his recent experiments although he will get no extra points for the bowl of cereal in the picture he shared on his Instagram account.
It may be some time before Ünal features on the next edition of Masterchef but his chicken casserole and salad looks pretty delicious.
The egg and tomato dish with the three olives by the side however, looks like a poor attempt at the Turkish breakfast dish; Menemen.
Ünal joined City on a £2 million transfer from Bursaspor over the summer transfer window but was loaned out after failing to get hold of a work-permit.
The 18-year-old is expected to feature for Genk against KV Mechelen in the Belgium Pro League.
