Ahead of the coerver coaching programme coming up at the Agege Stadium, Lagos from May 9-11, the Lagos State Football Association (LASFA) chairman, Mr. Seyi Akinwunmi has charged Nigeria coaches to grab the opportunities provided by this programme to enhance their technical and mental performance in soccer.
He further disclosed that, Lagos is championing the pilot edition in collaboration with Search and Groom-youth for development centre as a compliment to the youth football driven vision of his administration.
"We are pacesetters in Nigeria; we will not depart from this tradition. That we are associated with COERVER COACHING is something we are proud of and hope to influence beyond the territory of Lagos" Akinwunmi added.
In his comments, Chief Executive Officer/Technical Director, Coerver Coaching Netherlands, Rainel Woerdings, noted that, Nigeria has the potentials to produce coaches that can match the best in the world, if only the country can embrace a more robust technical and mental shift from what they are currently familiar with.
His words: “Coerver coaching is not just about kicking the ball around or other regular norms we are all familiar with. It is about understanding the secrets behind every soccer technique, skill and mental alertness. It involves skills coaches can use must have to pass on knowledge to players at any level. We have presence in over 50 countries and have also made remarkable contributions to the patterns of play of teams like Stoke City, Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid and so on”.
