Prime Minister Imran Khan announced a private football venture under Kamyab Jawan Sports Drive on Sunday in partnership with Liverpool’s footballer Michael Owen to groom Pakistan’s football talent.
The government will initiate the program Kamyab Jawan Sports Drive on Monday to extract and condition talented youth in an attempt to revive the sports culture in Pakistan. The partnership claims to help the youth tailor and improve their skills on an international level.
“Kamyab Jawan Sports Drive will mobilize Pakistan’s youth to become world-class footballers,” Prime Minister Imran said in a press release. Undoubtedly, Pakistan is immensely populated with talented and gifted youth who strive to polish their skills and make Pakistan proud on an international level. Such programs not only boost confidence but also enable youngsters to dream of making a future in their field or sports of choice.
Michael Owen, who played for renowned football clubs like Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Liverpool, said that the drive will prepare youth by making a “soccer city” in Pakistan. In a video message, Owen also said that he feels honored to be contacted by Imran Khan for this venture and is ready to play a role in bringing the Pakistani youth from a “local to a global” level.
