Real Madrid Foundation Soccer Clinic resumes today
The second phase of the Real Madrid Foundation Soccer Clinic begins today at the Campos Mini Stadium, Lagos.
About 300 participants, who took part in the first phase, were given their certificates last week Friday before the clinic took a two-day break.
Today ay the same venue, the Real Madrid Academy coaches – Daniel Rotella and Rodrigo Rubles – will start working with a new set of children.
On Friday last week, the youngsters, made up of boys and girls were presented with the certificates after successfully attending the clinic. The local coaches who took part were not left out as they were also certified.
One of the Project Managers for SPR Luxury Limited, Kayode Bawa-Allah said the kids showed exemplary character and earned their certificates for the good jobs they did. “I must commend the kids and coaches for the passion they showed towards learning new football skills and technique.
“The coaches from Madrid were equally happy with the way the kids acquainted themselves with what they were taught. It is good to also see that the players turned out on large numbers,” Bawa-Allah added.
One of the coaches, Christian Ebikade described the clinic as a dream come true, saying he has learnt a lot from the two coaches that came from Spain.
An elated child, Joseph Shaka commended SPR Luxury Limited for bringing the clinic to Nigeria and urged the organisers to do more for the Nigerian kids.
Interested kids are expected to be at the venue this morning for registration.
