Aspiring stars set for Man U camp

HARARE - A number of aspiring football players are set to travel to England in April for the Manchester United Soccer Schools UK Residential Camp.

The trip, which will be facilitated by local sports agency, Friendly Academy, will run from April 11 to 17.

The UK camp will see young players undergoing comprehensive courses covering technique, tactics, physical, mental and social elements of the game, in a fun and friendly atmosphere.

The camp will also offer cultural opportunities to thousands of aspiring football stars from around the globe who will converge in Manchester.

Amongst the numerous activities on offer, players will get a chance tour Wembley Stadium.

They will then watch an English Premiership fixture between defending champions Manchester United and Hull City.

Friendly Academy coach Partridge Muskwe said the trip was open to all aspiring football stars regardless of ability.

“This will obviously give the youngsters exposure at a tender age,” said the former CAPS United and Rufaro Rovers player.

“Players like David Beckham came through The Bobby Charlton Soccer School Academy. It is not just a camp but there is a chance to get picked from this camp. We are basically giving everybody a chance.

“We are also have other talented players who have disadvantaged backgrounds and we are working on taking them on-board for the camp,” he said.

Friendly Academy director Richard Solobala said the academy has made considerable strides since starting off two years ago.

“We have so far facilitated the scholarships of three junior players and we have had various trials in Spain,” said Solobala.

Am very pleased with your move but i want to know if you guys can also do this same thing in some part of Africa as well because Africa do have very young talented upcoming footballers who are looking forward to become great but don't have the means of reaching the top may be then you guy can pick some of them up and give them shelter and i want to assure you that you won't regret this because you might get future footballers like Yaya toure,Drogba K P boateng,Micheal Essien and many more in Africa at a very low cost of ideas...... From Ghana.....
