Samba flavour at a football academy in Penang

CRC Football Academy in Penang tied up for long term partnership with Cruzeiro 

I've found something interesting that i must share with viewers(despite only  one or two viewers came to my blog or even posted comments here) when i was actually browsing internet to find Malaysian who plays football professionally or trains in football academy abroad.

It was an eye opener that one amateur club has signed a long term partnership with renown club in Brazil, Cruzeiro and this has happened a year ago! 

The memorandum of understanding(MoU) was signed by the founder and chairman of the CRC Football Academy Mr.Laurence Loh and the International Director of Cruzeiro Esporte Club, Mr. Pedro Moreira at CRC Club House at Victoria House in George Town.

The training will be conducted under the guidance of head coach Jaino Matos, a Brazilian who is said to be most instrumental in bringing together Cruzeiro and CRC. 

The pact has even kicked off with project sending 4 of their young players to Brazil whom one of them reportedly shined during a month stint. He was the one that i've reported in my article recently that a 15 years old boy from Malaysia has attracted Cruzeiro interest, remember now?

Maybe,in the next 5 years Penang will set to be one of football powerhouse to be reckoned in Malaysia. Who knows?

It is a remarkable achievement that deserves a pat. However,i ponder how a tiny and amateur club would able to do something which FAM states affiliates have failed?
Wake up call to you, FAM and its states affiliates!
