ANOTHER MILESTONE IN THE ACTIVATION OF BUNDESLIGA CLUB ARMINIA BIELEFELD IN SOUTH AFRICA WAS THE LIVE SESSION WITH PRETORIA CALLIES FC, A CLUB WITH A LONG HISTORY IN SOUTH AFRICAN FOOTBALL AND CURRENTLY PLAYING IN THE SECOND DIVISION.
Overseen by Jonas Hecking, the players of PCFC, founded in 1898, focused on their goal scoring abilities as well as quickly creating chances and transitioning from offense to defense. The willingness to learn and the intensity with which the exercises were run impressed everyone and showed the thirst of the players for events like this.
“It was great to see how quickly the players took the advice and brought them on the pitch. It shows the raw potential which is slumbering inside the guys. It was a lot of fun for all of us and we are grateful for that short-termed opportunity”, said a pleased Jonas Hecking after the session Moses Malada, chairman of the club, was thrilled about this unique opportunity for his club.
“We have ambitioned goals and want to get promoted to the first division in the closer future. That is why these events are crucial really helpful for us to live up tour dreams. I want to thank Arminia Bielefeld for the great session!”
CEO of the club, Alfred Netshefhefhe, couldn’t agree more: “It is simply amazing to see how a bundesliga club is working. You can already see the impact this one session has had on our players! It was a huge success, and we are hoping to have more events like this one in the future.”
Together with its partner Schächter Sports and Dynasty Sports Entertainment, Arminia will start their coaching clinics for South African coaches in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned!
