WorldStage Newsonline-- Determined to develop football in the grassroots, the Lagos State Football Association (LSFA), has unveiled plans to host the Sodje Sports Foundation and certified English Coaches on a four-day visit.

The Sodje Brothers and the other crew, according to the LSFA Chairman, Mr. Seyi Akinwunmi will arrive in Lagos on 15th of May to give their support to the State, adding that the foundation will be coming with 400 pairs of boots to distribute to grassroots players

“The foundation is solely interested in observing the warm up drills and training pattern of the players, hence the DFAs are to work with the coaches’ councils within the division to make use of their training officers.

“Each division is to pick 36 players from different clubs in the division that are affiliated with the LSFA and also coaches from different councils within the divisions.

“On the final day of the tour, the English coaches will point out corrections in the areas that are needed,” he revealed.

The mission of the foundation is to help countries to develop from within, starting with the empowerment of the young people who are the future of these underdeveloped countries. Over the past decade, the Sodje brothers have regularly donated football kits and sport equipment, as well as coaching lessons to the youth.

The Sodje Sports Foundation crew will include; Efe Sodje, Steve Sodje, Sam Sodje, Paul Fairclough English FA Coach and England C Manager and Olufemi Amusan, the SSF International Media Advisor.
