Leicester City great Robbie Savage is delighted with the progress of his Pro Football Academy All-Stars academy.
Pro Football Academy have bought Stockport Town and the club will become a conduit for recycled young talent, giving them a pathway either back into the game or to further education.
“This has given me the buzz back," said Savage to the Mirror. "The Academy offers a chance to kids not only let go by clubs, and Savage added: “I go in the office – I've even got my own desk. We've got 36 centres, and by the end of next year we're aiming for 150 centres for 10,000 kids.
“We look to take on kids who have been rejected by clubs, whether they are too small, too slow or whatever, give them a coaching structure to help them find other clubs and keep their dreams of professional football alive.
"I know what rejection feels like so I can help with the mental side as well as the disciplines, tactics and techniques.
