Lagos, Nigeria: The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudasiru Obasa, has applauded Cover Coaching for bringing freshness and new methods of teaching football to Nigeria.

The speaker disclosed that Coerver Coaching could not have come at a time better than this, when Nigerian football needs major technical over hauling that must take place from the grassroots to the national level. He enjoined the convener of the project not to relent in pushing further to reach all concerned stakeholder and the government of Lagos state through the appropriate agency in charge of football, and will always be available to support the growth of the game in the state.
“Lagos are pacesetters in Nigeria; we will not depart from this tradition. That our dear state is associated with COERVER COACHING is something we are proud of and hope to influence beyond the territory of Lagos” Obasa added.
In his comments, Chief Executive Officer/Technical Director, Coerver Coaching Netherlands, Rainel Woerdings, noted that, Nigeria has the potentials to produce coaches that can match the best in the world, if only the country can embrace a more robust technical and mental shift from what they are currently familiar with.

It is about understanding the secrets behind every soccer technique, skill and mental alertness. It involves skills coaches can use, must have to pass on knowledge to players at any level. We have presence in over 50 countries and have also made remarkable contributions to the patterns of play of teams like Stoke City, Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid and so on”.
