Ghana U17 team coach Paa Kwesi Fabin has traveled to the UK to undergo a 10-day training program with Manchester City.

The Black Starlets trainer will left Accra on Sunday night according to Kumasi-based Metro FM.

Fabin is the latest Ghanaian coach to benefit from the Ghana FA’s partnership agreement with the English Premier League giants.

The trip is to afford the national team coach an opportunity to exchange ideas and learn modern trends of football especially in the area of talent development.

Fabin is expected to use the knowledge acquired during his 10-day training program at Man City to boost the Black Starlets’ campaign towards qualification to the 2015 Africa Junior Championships.

    Nice idea, except that it is good for our coaches at the "junior" level of our national teams!BUT, for AA and his deputy to be sent on such a training course, even reduces the respect our "overseas" national players would have for Them! These players are used to coaching methods and pedigree of their club coaches which are of the niveau of the Chief-coaches AA and his deputy were sent to understudy, it means they easily notice AA's shortcomings and deficiencies of the coaching business and as such tend not to play according to instructions! AA has on several occasions bemoaned the lack of concentration and also indiscipline of his team whenever they are beaten! The GFA who should have noticed these things have always been thinking of their pockets and had always refused to notice this problem! Appiah's solution is getting rid of the so-called "older" players and relying on the youth, meanwhile these "youth" also ply their trade outside Ghana, mostly in the top european teams, would he expect them to keep quiet when they notice his incompetence or better still his inadequate knowledge of the game?? The GFA should START THINKING AND STOP THE "WORSHIPING" OF MONEY!
