Morfou Impressed By Man City Youth Coaches

“We have been so impressed with the skill and experience that the MCFC coaches have brought to our young players,” said Mario Morfou, Mpumalanga Black Aces co-chairman and CEO.

Morfou said this as Aces youth academy bid farewell to the Man City School of Football coaches after an exciting six days of football clinics.

The clinics took place from Monday 31st of March to Wednesday 2nd of April 2014.

“We at Black Aces have a strong belief in development football and through this programme we aim not only to develop young players for our first team but also for our national team,” said Morfou.

Andy Smith, Manchester City Technical Director of Coaching of the School of Football was impressed with how the boys improved over the three days of coaching and has his eye on a number of them.

“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,” commented Smith.

“I am looking forward to coming back in July and seeing how the boys have improved and if the coaches have been successful in implementing the clinics’ lessons that we have held with them,” concluded Smith.

Here's a clip of Aces' introduction at Manchester City's Etihad Satdium.
