  1. Wow this is touching indeed, these guys you mentioned they have passion with football. And they were so patient with the youngsters as they were grouping young boys with and without talent teach them how to control the ball and how create space.
    And they were so patient in terms of developing these youngsters.
    Indeed they’re our heroes.
    Not only on the field they also managed to get rid of these boys from the street as football was their life.
    They were breathing football, eating football, talking football ⚽️ they were actually married to football.
    We give all the owner to these guys.
    Not all of us managed to succeed in football but one of the key things we learnt was to be discipline.
