Rare chance for ju­nior foot­ballers

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

New Zealand foot­ball hope­fuls aged be­tween 8 and 16 are get­ting the chance of a life­time in July with Euro­pean club AC Mi­lan launch­ing its in­au­gu­ral New Zealand-based ju­nior camp.

The young foot­ballers will be trained by AC Mi­lan and New Zealand foot­ball coaches, will have the chance to im­press scout Alessan­dro Mu­s­icco (from the Ital­ian Un­der-21 team), and could po­ten­tially travel to Italy to meet the AC Mi­lan squad.

‘‘The camp will pro­vide young New Zealand foot­ballers with an in­ter­na­tional train­ing camp ex­pe­ri­ence,’’ said Raf­faele Maio­rano, AC Mi­lan Ju­nior Camp’s New Zealand project co-or­di­na­tor.

Maio­rano has been in New Zealand to meet Welling­ton young­sters and busi­nesses in­ter­ested in the camps.

Two ju­niors from the camp will be se­lected by AC Mi­lan tech­ni­cal staff to travel to Mi­lan, take part in the In­tesa San­paolo Mi­lan ju­nior camp and meet the AC Mi­lan squad.

AC Mi­lan cov­ers costs for the trip.
