Two Pakistani coaches of Karachi United Club (KUC) will be leaving for Manchester in late September to attend a month-long children's coaching programme conducted by Manchester United.

Director Administration KUC Taha Alizai said on Tuesday that coaches were being sent to Manchester under the private programme of UK-based On side International. The coaches selected by the private club include Imran Ali (28) and Sajjad Naqvi (32) both belonging to KUC under-15 soccer academy.

Taha said that last month the under-15 KUC team visited Manchester and played three matches there. The boys met leading footballers of Manchester Club, had their autographs and were photographed with them. -APP
