After a successful, trophy-laden career at some of Europe’s leading clubs, two-time African Footballer of the Year winner Frederic Kanoute has turned his attentions to the next generation. Kanoute’s KAFO Academy offers young footballers who are serious about the ‘Beautiful Game’ the chance to learn amazing skills through a team of highly-qualified and experienced coaches. Players can learn tricks to dizzy opponents at KAFO’s Skills Workshop and challenge themselves with fun, technique-based assessments.
With a wide variety of programmes on offer, each session is jam-packed with drills, themed directional practices and small-sided games delivered by highly-qualified coaches with experience in European football leagues. A certain Frederic Kanoute himself also pops in to coach players on key aspects of the game including passing, ball manipulation, turning, shooting, dribbling, attack and defense skills, as well as positioning, possession and phases of play.
