Manchester United legend Schmeichel to grace Nairobi soccer clinic

Nairobi, 24 Aug – (ANA) - Manchester United has confirmed that one of its most decorated club legends, Peter Schmeichel will attend the inaugural Airtel Rising Stars African Championships and Soccer Clinic in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi. Schmeichel, a former Manchester and Denmark International goalkeeper who won five Premier League titles, three FA Cups and the Champions League during a trophy-laden eight-year spell at Old Trafford, was appointed as club ambassador last month and joined an elite  group of former players like Sir Bobby Charlton, Dwight Yorke, Bryan Robson, Gary Neville, and Andy Cole in promoting the club globally. He will attend the final matches of the first-ever Airtel Rising Stars Africa Championship on the 25th of August in Nairobi. His tour is  part of an exclusive partnership between Airtel and Manchester United in several African countries. Part of the partnership agreement enables  Airtel to tap into the technical expertise provided by the club through Manchester United Soccer Schools (MUSS) managed clinics. The clinics are focused on providing an innovative and specialized training program that harnesses the natural capabilities of each of the selected young talents from several African countries.
