Published on: 20 December 2019

Former German International Lothar Matthäus has encouraged young footballers to work harder to help them accomplish their dreams at this year's Bundelisga Football School (BLFS).

The program organised  by StarTimes with the German Bundesliga gathered 100 young footballers to participate in the five-day mentorship program.

The world cup winning captain took the young footballers through shooting and passing drills at the Lord's Wembley Plus Park in Accra.

''I'm very happy to be in Ghana and to engage these young football talents who are obviously talented and I think these are the right steps to make football in Ghana better in the future.

''They have to work harder and each exercise they undertake would improve their qualities and they would certainly achieve their dreams of playing in the World Cup, the Champions League, among others,'' he said.

He was accompanied by former Ghana internationals Samuel Kuffour and Charles Akunnor who also engaged young footballers in series of drills together with some selected German and Ghanaian coaches.
