Disclosing this yesterday in an exclusive interview with Trustsports, the Rector of the Academy, Clemence Westerhof, said the visit of the former Chelsea and FC Porto Coach will take place between June 25 and 27.
According to the former Super Eagles handler, arrangements to receive the football tactician are in top gear, adding that the Portuguese is looking forward to visiting Ilorin on the said date.
Asked what the former English Premier League winning coach will be coming to do in Ilorin, Westerhof said the Coach will be there to hold some training sessions with the students of his Academy.
“Mourinho is a top
class coach who has won the European Champions League and has won the Italian League in the first season at the helm of affairs at Inter Milan. So, his coming to our Academy is something which everybody is looking forward to and happy about here in Ilorin and in the entire country.
“Mourinho is a great Coach who has won a lot of laurels. I also have won the Africa Nations Cup and been to the World Cup. Sitting together with him to impact football tactics in the boys will help boost their morale and give them confidence that one day some of them will be playing for big clubs like Inter Milan, Chelsea and the rest.
“My students have a lot to learn from the great football tactician. Those of them who have been watching and admiring him on the screen will now have the opportunity to see him, speak with him and learn from his wealth of experience,” Westerhof stated.
