Feyenoord Rotterdam youth coach Jan Gosgens admits that he was impressed with the training facilities of the Kaizer Chiefs soccer academy.
The 49-year-old is currently running coaching clinics in Bloemfontein and recently visited the Naturena and met with club chairman Kaizer Motaung, assistant coach Doctor Khumalo and youth coaches Ace Khuse, Arthur Zwane.
Gosgens is the U18 coach of Feyenoord Rotterdam, which is known to run the best youth development structures in the Netherlands.
‘It’s great to see these former Chiefs legends involved in the football academy,’ Gosgens told the Kaizer Chiefs website.
The Dutch youth coach says that South Africa has enough young talent but insists that it needs to develop correctly.
‘To invest in the youth is important. There is enough soccer talent in South Africa. However, it needs to be groomed correctly and for that good coaches and good training facilities are needed.
‘Frankly, I think that Amakhosi are leading in South Africa with their facilities. Their amenities here are stunning. It’s clear that chairman Kaizer Motaung is a visionary,’ the Dutchman added.
