DA NANG ― Former Arsenal player Fredrick Ljungberg will be joining local children at the Vinamilk-Arsenal Soccer School's summer camp training programme in HCM City next Tuesday.
As scheduled, Ljungberg will arrive in HCM City on Monday night before showing off his football skills and knowledge to trainees during the summer class at Hoa Lu Stadium in District 1, said Mae Mua, a representative of the British sports marketing firm Strata in Viet Nam.
"We expect to recruit 200 kids in the age groups of under-five and under-18 for a 10-week course," Mae Mua said.
She said the school will open its first course at Ha Noi's Water Resources University Stadium on June 15.
The HCM City-based school, which was launched in 2008, organises football classes every Saturday and Sunday and works to promote football among youth across the country.
Trainers at the school are former players and coaches of Viet Nam teams and London-based team Arsenal. ― VNS
