TKU welcomes Ron Yu, a coach from professional football club Kitchee SC based in Hong Kong, who is undertaking a two month internship with TKU.
Organised through Paul Bateson, Director of Football at TKU, the two month internship will add huge value to the coaching delivery at the club.
“When Ron was recommended to me from staff at New Zealand Football, I snapped up the chance to bring him in,” Bateson said.
He went on to say, “Ron’s club Kitchee SC has had a strong link with Barcelona FC and has worked under their methodology extensively, so aligns with our methodology on player development through our academy programmes”
Ron will be involved with Academy coaching, along with the Napier U19 men’s squad the 9th grade Nationals, plus much more.
