Former Kenyan International player Simeon Mulama has urged the government to invest in grassroot football fields which can be accessible to young upcoming football talents in the country.
Speaking to Ghetto radio Sports, Simeon says that as much as the Government is trying to build two football stadiums in each county for the purpose of holding football tournaments they should invest in grassroot pitches which can be accessible to young upcoming football talent.
“Football talent should be natured from a young age, the presence of grassroot pitches provides opportunities for young talent to have a place to practice whenever they want to practise.”says Mulama.
He further faulted the land grabbing of the grassroot fields that have helped nurture football talents across the country.
He says the pitches should further be maintained and developed to avoid losing young talents.
