“All is set for this year’s clinic,” he said. “We have put in place every logistic for the  successful organisation of the clinic, which is one of the association’s grassroots  development tools.  If the coaches are not well trained, their products may not be good  enough, and this will surely affect the whole system. This is why we collaborated with the  American Embassy to organise this clinic,” Okunnu said.

The former secretary of Lagos State Football Association  therefore thanked the American  Embassy for supporting the association, while calling on the grassroots coaches to take  advantage of every opportunity presented to them at the clinic.
