Desailly to Coach at Chelsea Soccer Schools

Recommended Posts

DUBAI — Football fever is set to hit the emirate of Abu Dhabi in February when World Cup 1998 and Euro 2000 winner Marcel Desailly makes his debut at the Chelsea Soccer Schools, at Zayed Sports City and also, for the first time at Al Ain, a press release said.

The French legend will be joined by former Chelsea teammate and ex-England international Graeme Le Saux and women’s World Cup winning star, Lorrie Fair, as well as members of Chelsea’s youth academy coaching staff. Hosted by Etihad Airways, the official airline and platinum sponsor of English premier league side Chelsea Football Club, the soccer schools will run at Al Ain Football Club on 10 February and in Abu Dhabi from 11-14 February.

Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways’ executive vice president marketing and product, said: “To bring a World Cup and European Championship winner such as Marcel to Abu Dhabi will certainly create a buzz for the Chelsea Soccer Schools and build on the success of last years event.

“During the event more than 500 school children will have access to the former players as well as the coaches from Chelsea and I’m sure it will be a huge success.”
