SINGAPORE: On Friday, youths at the Singapore Indian Development Association (SINDA) got a chance to get up close and personal with some of football’s biggest names.
Former Liverpool defender Stephane Henchoz, former Chelsea striker Tore Andre Flo and former Ajax striker Michael Mols spent some time coaching the teens and even performing tricks for them.
The players are in Singapore for the inaugural EPL Masters Football Singapore Cup this weekend.
It is an indoor six—a—side tournament that will see four teams of legendary stars from the EPL and the famous Singaporean squad of 1994 battle it out.
Former Chelsea striker Tore Andre Flo said: "It’s going to be a good atmosphere. We’re certainly going to try and do our best and play good football and hopefully that will attract more people to play."
Former Liverpool defender Stephane Henchoz said: "It’s a great occasion for the people, even for the family to come with their kids to see some of the players they used to see every Saturday in the EPL.
"It’s been a very good response so far. I would think that in the future there would be a tournament here (every year) in Singapore."
