By Femi Atolagbe
The National U-20 coach of Nigeria,Ladan Bosso has commended Ondo State Football Association for organising a two-day football clinic for young footballers in the state to showcase their talents.
Bosso stated this while speaking with Ondo FA Media after watching over 10 teams slug it out with each other during the two-day football clinic.
The coach, who expressed satisfaction with what he witnessed in the couple of matches played during, urged young talents to be more disciplined.
Bosso said it was important for him as a coach to attend such clinics to speak with young and aspiring football talents and advise them on how to develop.
He advised the participating players not to be deterred.
” I have always said this some of players ,small thing,they are almost giving up, the Nigeria context is an environment you have to keep fighting, no small thing should deter you, draw you down.
“Keep fighting because you don’t know who is watching! From training session, you can find yourself in Europe, not necessarily matches so what I try to advise is be focused and be determined at any giving time,” he said.
Acting Chairman, Ondo State Football Association, Mr Aderemi Adetula,who noted that the programme was first of it’s kind added that it could be an annual event.
“It is not out of place if we are able to do this every year, it’s a rare opportunity we enjoyed this time around and it’s a first of its kind in Ondo State where a national coach is brought down for a football clinic of this nature and taking advantage to scout for national player.
“We are expecting more of this. I will advise all teams to do follow up of their players and also project their players down incase any of them is invited to the camp,” he said.
