Even in Kenya football is the most loved and followed game. Given the past under the British government, the most followed championship is the British one. Man U, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are the most popular teams, then Real Madrid and Barcelona. Lately, thanks to Pogba, Dybala and now Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus is also among the most popular.
The boys play everywhere, sometimes with a real ball, often with something that you can kick by rolling it.
Kenya does not have a great football tradition and has never gone to the headlines such as the Marathon and cross-country races where it boasts World Champions and often gold medals at the Olympics. Kenya and Ethiopia are the queens in the world in these specialties.
Unfortunately there are no sports facilities and staff with which to train and grow in the right way. There are very good young players but everything ends when you have to work to live It’s all over the place.
Through our new Juventus club, we want to reopen, as we did in Nairobi in the past, a free football school, like all the things we do for Kenyan children and ask for the support of the County of Kilifi.
Experience in Nairobi taught us a lot of things to do in order not to fail, so now we are ready to talk again.
We will present our sports program in January and keep you informed. Juventus Chakama will also be born, with players from our village of Kibora and also in Kibora we will realize an official football field.
Young people must have fun and stay away from all negative temptations such as drugs and alcohol. By playing football, young people train the mind and body to grow together, learn to be united, learn to have goals by playing for a goal and apply the same mental form off the field.
To each a role, to each a task, to each the imagination to excel. I believe very much in this new mission and I will do my best, as usual.
JOFC CHAKAMA will organize the national amateur championship FOOTBALL FORGE OF TALENTS.
