A “MUSS” for DHL Champ19ns Trophy Tour

As part of the DHL Champ19ns Trophy Tour, Manchester United legends Andy Cole and Lee Sharpe visited the Abu Dhabi Manchester United Soccer School (MUSS) to meet and coach some lucky youngsters.

The kids who attended Manchester United’s recent Soccer School in Abu Dhabi participated in a training session they won’t soon forget. That’s because their coaches were none other than Reds legends Andy Cole and Lee Sharpe. The pair were in town as part of the DHL Champ19ns Trophy Tour – and for the legends taking time for the kids was an absolute MUST – or MUSS in this case.

Andy and Lee held coaching sessions with the players before getting involved in a round of “friendly” 5-a-side games. The legends were pitted against each other as they captained sides of different age groups over three back-to-back games. With the scores even at one win each, Andy’s side won a controversial decider despite Lee claiming his side should have had a late penalty after a two-footed challenge on him by one of the soccer schools young female players!

A good time was had by all.
