Remembering Sir Bobby Robson

It was with great sadness that we learned about the death of one of our great supporters and spokesmen, Sir Bobby Robson. Sir Bobby was a true supporter of “The Power of Football” and his kind words and advice were important in the growth and success of our programs. When we spoke about children in our communities around the world, his eyes would light up at stories about children with no shoes playing on fields with no grass, and he would smile and shake his head.

I’m sure that if his health had permitted, he would have been first on a plane to Tanzania or Malawi or India and, with his tracksuit on, he would have passed on his unmatched enthusiasm for football to the children in our communities. The world of football will miss this great man and all of us at Coaches Across Continents will miss sharing our successes with him. With thanks, we say goodbye to one of the truly great football heroes.
