FIFA coaching instructor Mathiot Ulrich has urged local coaches to always practice that they have been taught.
Mathiot was speaking at a training organized by FUFA to cater for youth teams coaches at FUFA technical centre,Njeru.
“The future is bright for FUFA investing in the education of coaches who handle youth football. I want you to make it practical after this course at your clubs by involving the young players,” said Mathiot.
