Former FC Barcelona and Nigeria international star, Emmanuel Amunike has hailed the management of waves-making Provazios Sports Academy for the good works it is doing in the development of the hundreds of budding sports talents in the academy.
Provazios Sports Academy is a multi-sports training and development centre for young lads aged 5-18 years. And with top professional coaches and trainers in athletics, aerobics, basketball, cycling, dancing, football, judo, karate, swimming and tennis.
Speaking on Saturday during his visit to the Magodo, Lagos based academy, Amunike, who was obviously impressed by the organisation and the training facilities at the academy, praised the efforts of the management led by Segun Solanke, to produce the next generation of classy, gifted and well trained athletes that would rule the world of sports in the nearest future.
Reacting to the comments and praises of the ex- Sporting Lisbon star, Solanke who is also the president of Lagos based NLO side Olumo United, thanked Amunike for the visit, which he described as timely and very inspiring.
“This visit by Coach Amunike, MON,
to our academy is indeed, very timely and of course, inspiring. The lads are very excited and happy to see one of their role models visit them. We believe, it would go a long way to further inspire them and boost their confidence towards achieving their sporting dreams,” Solanke remarked.
While expressing his appreciation to the parents and guardians who have enrolled their wards with the academy for believing in Provazios Sports Academy, he was quick to also advise others to join the fray in order to help the lads achieve their dreams.
