The Nnamdi Azikiwe stadium in Enugu was a site to behold last weekend when former Super Eagles keeper Peter Rufai took the second in the series of Milo Football Clinic to the coal city.
As expected over 2000 aspiring footballers took part in the weeklong football clinic with Rufai, providing the necessary ingredient in making the programme a huge success.
Apart from Enugu state, the 2011 Milo Football Clinic will also visit two other key cities of Ilorin and Lagos. Besides the exercise being the first in Enugu, this year clinic also witness engagement of over thirty grassroots coaches and an expatriate, Patrick Kampeneers from Belgium. Kampeneers has been involved in youth football development for the past 22 years.
The three day exercise, which hitherto resurrected the dwindling fortune of grassroots football in the state rewarded the participating youths as the first 16-players who emerged winner in the novelty match organised after the clinic went home with N20,000 and N10, 000, respectively with certificate of participation, football and other Milo gift each.
