Commenting on the announcement of the partnership Andy Rogers from Tottenham Hotspur’s Global Coaching Programme said: "This is a fantastic partnership for the Club and we are looking forward to working with Investec and Forward Zone to deliver these coaching courses across South Africa.
“The Club has a long association with South Africa and through our ongoing relationship with Supersport United we are aware of the huge amount of talent and passion for football that exists across the country. Our goal is to deliver the best learning environment possible to encourage and develop the skills and techniques of all those players that attend the courses, whatever their level.”
Janet Larsen, Investec South Africa’s head of marketing, says Investec is proud to be involved in this initiative with Tottenham Hotspur to bring elite coaching to the country.
"This new partnership is an extension of an already strong relationship we have with Tottenham Hotspur. The development of talent, combined with a passionate team spirit, makes this a great association for Investec. This programme will be beneficial to young South African soccer players who will be exposed to a wealth of football talent and greats of the game who will share their skill and knowledge with these aspiring youngsters.”
The first course took place at St David’s School, Johannesburg from 10-14 December 2012 and was attended by Tottenham Hotspur ambassador and former captain, Ledley King.
Each course was run by four professional full-time coaches from Tottenham Hotspur’s Global Coaching Programme, who were assisted by several South African coaches, to ensure all those attending have the chance to learn how to play the ‘Tottenham Hotspur way’.
