Paju: Participants on the AFC Coach Asia programme received advice and encouragement from Korea Football Association President Chung Mong Gyu during their training at the Korea National Football Centre in Paju.
Twenty-six members of Batch 2014, the pioneer batch of the AFC’s new coach development programme, have completed their Module 3 training under the programme which started on November 17.
Chung addressed the participants during the course and emphasised that AFC Coach Asia, which culminates in the awarding of the AFC Professional Coaching Diploma - the continent's highest coaching credential, is a very valuable and important programme.
He said as the participants are members of the first batch of the new coach development programme, the future of Asian football is in their hands, adding that they should train hard in order to take the Asian game to an even higher level.
A closing ceremony was held at the end of the module training. Both the AFC and the course participants thanked the Korea Football Association and its Technical Department for the support they had provided during the programme.
The Coach Asia programme was started in April this year with the first module on fitness in the Malaysian capital city of Kuala Lumpur. The second module took place in August in China.
Two more modules are expected to take place to complete the five-module, two-year programme.
