Real Madrid Plan Football Academy In Rivers State

Authorities in Rivers State are collaborating with Spanish giants, Real Madrid, to build a football academy in the country, the governor said on Tuesday.

Governor Nyesom Wike said the academy would empower youths in the oil-rich state.

“We have young men who want to be coaches, who will be trained in Spain,” said Wike, whose state government sponsors top Nigerian club Rivers United.
