DILI, november 25, 2022 (TATOLI)- South Korean Senior Trainer who is known by his name Mr. King requested the Government’s State Secretariat for Youth and Sports (SoSYS) to focus on nutritional intake from junior players to produce talented soccer players for Timor-Leste in the future.

“The problem is, the government must pay attention to the intake of young people who play soccer because while they are practicing they also have to maintain their nutrition,” said Mr. King when opening his junior soccer training at the Lecidere field Wednesday.

He explained good football payers must have sufficient nutrition to focus on physical and mental development also facilities to facilitate training including adequate infrastructure.

According to Mr. King, Timorese children are the future of TL soccer players, therefore more investment is needed for these children and for them to be able to compete at the Asian and international levels.

Meanwhile, The Secretary of State of Youth and Sport, Abrão Saldanha, acknowledged that currently, the government has not given full attention to junior players therefore he promised to focus on routine training for the children by utilizing the infrastructure of the players’ dormitory in Becora which is supported by KOICA.

“Currently we are in the process of building an ongoing dormitory in Becora, once construction is complete all players will live in the dormitory to ensure they have consumed sufficient nutrition to focus on regular soccer training,” he said.

SoSYD will collaborate with parents to provide adequate food for children and support them to spend more time on soccer practice.
