KUALA LUMPUR: Forty-five students had a rare chance to have a kickabout with Chelsea FC superstars during a special coaching clinic.
The students, from three schools in Selangor, Pahang and Perak, milled around Nicolas Anelka, Salomon Kalou, Ashley Cole, Daniel Sturridge and Patrick van Aanholt after they arrived at the clinic here yesterday.
The superstars then joined the students in their drills that was watched by dozens of fans who converged at an indoor pitch in Damansara Damai.
The Blues arrived in Kuala Lumpur on Monday, three days ahead of their friendly match against Malaysia which will be held at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil today.
Former Chelsea player Graeme Le Saux was also spotted moving among the crowd.
The clinic, organised by Malaysia Airlines’ (MAS) travel arm MASholidays, was part of MAS’ Pintar programme targeting underpriviledged children.
MAS is also the official air charter for the Chelsea’s Asia Tour 2011.
