EduKick Manchester players are achieving success
Another one of the EduKick Manchester players are achieving success, this time its current EduKick Manchester Player Zaan (Ismail Zaan Amir)
Zaan gets an International call up
Zaan joined Edukick Manchester at the start of the 2014/2015 season, and as one of the youngest players on the programme has really impressed in his time. Zaan is a complete professional, both on the pitch and off the pitch, working hard in every aspect of the programme and being totally focused on success. During his year at EduKick Manchester, Zaan caught the eye of a few of the coaches during the PFA sessions at Blackburn Rovers, and the attention of the scouts during the UK football trials.
Zaan’s development over the past season has been fantastic, all due to his ability to learn, take on board feedback and work hard to improve.All the work rewarded Zaan with the Young Player Of The Year award for 2014/2015 and now his effort has been rewarded during his summer break with Zaan being selected for his National U16’s side.
During August 2015 Zaan will travel to the SAFF U16’s Championships in Bangladesh. He will be representing the Maldives but not only that, he will be leading them out as team captain.
In their warm up games, they have been doing well, with a 5-1 victory and Zaan getting on the score sheet.
Everyone at Edukick Manchester are tremendously proud of Zaan and wish him the best of luck at the tournament. Zaan will then be returning to Edukick Manchester for his second year on the programme, finishing his iGCSE’s and working more on his football, and with the experience of international duty who knows where he can take his football career.
