first_img Gatland caused a massive stir after controversially opting to omit the experienced Ireland centre as one of six changes to last weekend’s 16-15 defeat to the Wallabies. Carling, who toured with the Lions in 1993, told The Sun: “My jaw almost hit the floor when I heard the news. Gatland will be hung out to dry if he gets this one wrong and I firmly believe he has made the wrong call. There is just no logic to his decision. I would never pick a team on sentiment but O’Driscoll would still be in my team on merit.” Former England captain Will Carling believes British and Irish Lions coach Warren Gatland has made a huge error in dropping Brian O’Driscoll for the Test decider against Australia, claiming the decision has “no logic.” He added: “Okay, he hasn’t set the world alight in this Test series but in make-or-break games like this you need players of proven world class. “O’Driscoll ticks all the boxes. And because of that I’d have given him the captaincy.” Carling is not the only former Lion to have criticised the decision to axe O’Driscoll, but Gatland has received a measure of support from England’s World Cup-winning coach Sir Clive Woodward. Woodward, who represented the Lions as a player in 1980 and 1983 and as coach in 2005, believes Gatland was right to leave O’Driscoll out of his starting line-up, although he believes the Irishman should have been on the bench. “A head coach cannot afford to be sentimental,” said Woodward, who appointed O’Driscoll as his Lions captain in 2005. “Dropping Brian O’Driscoll is the right decision based on his form and the way the Lions need to play to win this series.” He added in his column in the Daily Mail: “I agree with dropping O’Driscoll from the team, but he should not have been left out of the match-day squad. I would much rather have the 125 caps and game-changing intelligence of O’Driscoll to call upon in the final 20 minutes of a must-win Test than the inexperience of Manu Tuilagi.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Kenyan youth coach Hamisi Mohamed wins a lifetime opportunity to receive coaching clinic from Arsenal FC.NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 9 – Kenyan youth tactician Hamisi Mohamed will earn a lifetime opportunity to get coach training from English Premier League giants Arsenal FC after being named the winner of the Future Stars Programme run by WorldRemit.Competing against five other youth football coaches from across Africa, Hamisi secured over 35% of the votes on futurestars.worldremit.com to win the chance to train with coaches from Arsenal Soccer Schools. Hamisi will now prepare to travel to London to attend a customized training programme to support him in building a legacy of positive social impact through football in Kenya.“I am very happy to earn this lifetime opportunity. I thank all the Kenyans for voting for me, this shows that Kenya has a lot of talent in grassroot football. I will come back with experience that I will help my country grow in football and see that one day Kenya qualifies for World Cup,” Hamisi told Capital Sport.Hamisi, known locally as Coach Kaka, is one of the founders of Young Talents Soccer Academy, a mixed academy in Embul Bul, Ngong.The academy aims to help children to succeed both on and off the pitch. “We use the power of football to address social issues, to teach them life skills. We want them to learn to respect themselves, to know the effects of drug abuse, the effects of violence and crime,” says Hamisi.Reflecting the shared values of the two companies, the Future Stars programme was set up by WorldRemit together with Arsenal to acknowledge and reward the valuable contribution of youth coaches to their local communities.Through the programme, 25 shortlisted coaches have already been granted Arsenal replica shirts for their entire youth squad in recognition of their work.Andrew Stewart, Managing Director Middle East & Africa at WorldRemit said:“Our business is all about helping our customers’ financial support for their community to go further. The work of all the coaches in the Future Stars programme has reinforced our belief in the immense potential of sport to inspire positive change and encouraged us to explore further opportunities to support the communities we serve through sport. We hope that this programme will encourage others to follow their example and that this will be only the beginning of a much longer story.”Hamisi is a founder of Young Talents Soccer Academy, a mixed academy in Embul Bul, Ngong.Back in 1985, in response to social unrest on London estates, Arsenal became one of the first clubs in the UK to set up a dedicated community team in 1985.The Young Talents academy emerged from similar origins: Hamisi founded the club over 10 years ago to bring young members of his community together following the post-election violence in Kenya.As Arsenal’s community has grown, so has the impact of Arsenal in the Community’s work and the team now deliver sport, social and education programmes to over 5,000 individuals each week.Simon McManus of Arsenal Soccer Schools said:“Arsenal itself is an example of how the social impact of football can grow from a small local community to an international programme. It is inspiring to us to see how coaches across Africa are using the power of football to support and educate children at the grassroots level and I think there is a lot we can also learn from them.“Both WorldRemit and Arsenal have grown from humble beginnings to become global businesses, credited with transforming our respective sectors. Now we hope that together we can help Hamisi to play a similarly transformational role in Kenya – perhaps even internationally.”0Shares0000(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
