MSN Malaysia was at the official 'Chelsea FC Asia Tour 2013 adidas Chelsea Blue Pitch Training Clinic' which see Chelsea players and their top coaches train over 50 aspiring youths from Malaysia. While we were nowhere near the lucky fans who were given a rare opportunity to train with their idols, watching the kids in action made us proud! The training session was held at NPNG Sports Centre in Damansara Damai. A total of five Chelsea star players, Tomas Kalas, Petr Cech, Andre Schurrle, Ryan Bertrand and Marco van Ginkel, were hands-on with the youths.
The Chelsea FC Youth Training clinic is part of the ‘Here To Play Here To Stay’ campaign established by Chelsea Football Club during their visit to Asia back in 2011. The campaign is part of a long-term outreach programme which will see the Blues team host yearly activities in improving and developing the local football scene across Asia.
