SA’s WFA Courses Going Well

Former Barcelona, Chelsea and Manchester City coach, Raymond Verheijen, has been impressed with the standard of the students in his latest World Football Academy group.

The aim of WFA, as stated by the organization, is “to provide coaches, staff members and practitioners worldwide alike with the opportunity to become educated in all the football related areas of expertise.


“By acquiring the best coaches and the best football specialists in the world to share their experiences and methods, the World Football Academy will help create and develop football specific” specialists where the reference point is always football.”


The organisation, who has Guus Hiddink as an ambassador, has already opened up academies in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Japan, as well as South Africa, and so far the ex-Holland, Russia and South Korea coach has seen signs of promise from Mzansi’s coaching future.


Verheijen told the Siya crew, “The response here has been very good, what has been enjoyable this time is that the group we are working with ask questions all the time. It’s good for me, because the interaction is what makes it interesting for me, it’s not just one way traffic. 


“The level of the questions is very high, it’s a very good group and what I can also sense that there is a young generation of coaches that really want to move forward.”


The final course of this term took place on Saturday the 26th of January, however the Verheijen will be returning for more courses in July, when they will be taking place across South Africa.
