Yeye endorses COPA Coca-Cola Future Stars Camp

Following a hard-fought victory over AmaTuks development, the COPA Coca-Cola Future Stars camp was less intense in the third day of the week-long training camp currently taking place at the High-Performance Centre in Pretoria.

Taking the foot of the pedal from the vigorous training, coach Simba Marumo, Jabulani Mendu and Selekedi Mogale handed over the reins to Guinness World Record holder Khris Njokwane to share his experience with the squad in the morning session.

The popular freestyler, who made world headlines earlier this year for controlling a ball that dropped from 37.4 meters before making a minimum of four touches also shared the importance of working hard with the boys.

“Talent alone will not be enough to secure you a professional contract. It is important for you to work hard daily and continue improving yourself as a player in order to be able to compete at the highest level” cautioned the world record holder.

Following Njokwane’s session, Supersport United midfielder, Reneilwe Letsholonyane took over with a session on passing. The two-hour long session saw the ever-green “Yeye” demonstrating passing and important off the ball movements in game situations.

“My session today was based on passing. We spent some time on correct techniques to use when passing and what to do as a player once you have passed the ball to your teammate. This included various types of movements and how best to support your team. I must also thank the organisers for putting together such an initiative which has brought together talent from different parts of the country” said Letsholonyane.

The COPA Coca-Cola Future Stars will take on Kaizer Chiefs on Friday, 26 October with the aim of possibly being scouted into the Amakhosi youth development structures.
