50 young players aged 13 years have been picked by scouts and coaches for the programme out of which some of them would be chosen and offered scholarships to be trained in Senegal and Qatar.
Accompanied by coach Didi Dramani, they congratulated the 50 young boys picked from all over the nation, and commended the coordinators who worked tirelessly to get the very best out of a lot of talents.
Oti Akenteng advised the players to comport themselves while in the one week camp and obey instructions from their coaches.
He hailed Captain (rtd) Andy Sam for the project which began ten years ago and promised support from the Ghana Football Association.
Didi Dramani who has coached Kumasi Asante Kotoko to win the Premier League of Ghana and handles the national Under 20 women’s team, the Black Princesses also commended the efforts of the players and organisers of the Aspire programme.
Oti Akenteng urged the coordinators who are interested in coaching to take courses to upgrade their levels and standards to broaden their knowledge in football. He was happy to see some qualified coaches with CAF licenses at the Tema Stadium contributing to the exercise.
