Borussia Monchengladbach players brighten up young migrants’ training session at the Home of FIFA

A group of young migrants that practice on a weekly basis at the Home of FIFA in Zurich, as part of the "Football Connects" programme, had a special visit from coaches and players from German Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach.

A group of young migrants that practice on a weekly basis at the Home of FIFA in Zurich, as part of the “Football Connects” programme from Swiss organisation Raumfang, had an unforgettable training session this Wednesday. Fifty kids aged 12 to 18 were hosted and joined by a handful of youth coaches and four members of Borussia Monchengladbach’s senior team: Ibrahima Traoré, Thorgan Hazard, Mahmoud Dahoud and Tobias Sippel.

For over two hours, not only did the special guests conduct drills and technical activities, they also joined the young players in mini-matches before finishing the day by taking pictures together and signing autographs. The autographs were appropriately signed on the Borussia Monchengladbach training shirts that were handed out to each of the participants.
