Mpumalanga Black Aces’ partnership with Manchester City could prove to be a very fruitful one, with praise already coming in from the UK.
Aces’ youth academy recently bid farewell to the Man City School of Football coaches after a few days of football clinics in Johannesburg, and it seems the coaches from England were impressed.
Andy Smith, Manchester City Technical Director of Coaching of the School of Football, said, “Your young football players have the core ingredients - desire to play, respect for their coaches and team mates and the thirst for knowledge - to further their careers in football. I feel that an element that is still missing is the “how to” – how to implement the skills and coaches education.”
At Aces we have many, many youth academies, from U5 all the way to our senior squad. Does that bode well for our future?
