Manchester United Soccer Schools (MUSS) have announced a new signing in Dubai which will see budding footballers learn to play the United way
MUSS has been successfully teaching football to UAE children at its home in Abu Dhabi since 2010, and now the programme has been extended to Dubai after local partner Reem Investments signed an agreement with Repton School.
‘Combine to Attack' kick starts in Dubai on October 5 and will teach boys and girls aged 7 to 16 years the specific skills and techniques of Manchester United's first team greats Paul Scholes, Tom Cleverley and Michael Carrick.
Children in Abu Dhabi will learn the same techniques displayed by the central midfield trio with their 10-week programme starting on September 29 at the Dome@Rawdhat.
Reem Investments CEO Bambang Sugeng Bin Kajairi said: "It was always the plan to bring MUSS to Dubai and after a fantastic start at the Dome@Rawdhat in Abu Dhabi, we're excited about our new set up at Repton School.
"The popularity of the courses in the UAE capital continues to increase and we expect to see the same in Dubai where there is an insatiable appetite for the beautiful game.”
MUSS Dubai head coach Andy Dixon added: "The children will learn the same techniques displayed by Manchester United players and have the opportunity to develop these techniques in small-sided game situations.
"We also teach the children in a classroom setting the importance of adopting a balanced, healthy diet, encouraging them to make the correct food choices as part of their daily routines, especially before and after training.”
Children will take part in the MUSS series of skills challenges with the top two point scorers from the UAE Skills Final receiving an all expenses paid trip to Manchester to represent the UAE in the World Skills Final at United's Carrington training ground as well as at Old Trafford in 2013.
