Doha, 30 June 2020 - Former Netherlands star Aron Winter will be the special guest on Wednesday’s edition of Generation Amazing Instagram Live. The current assistant coach of the Greece national team will discuss his football career and outline the life values he has learned from the sport.
Winter, who turned out for Ajax, Inter Milan and Lazio, appeared in three FIFA World Cups for the Netherlands. He will talk about both his early and present-day inspirations, along with the power of football to unite people and break down cultural barriers.
Winter is the latest football legend to appear in the series. He follows Xavi Hernandez, Samuel Eto’o, Cafu, Tim Cahill and others.
In addition to Winter’s appearance, Sheffield FC’s Foundation Director, Chris Dolby, will also join @GA4good this week. The former midfielder will discuss his club’s partnership with Generation Amazing and Leeds United today at 4 PM Doha time.
The collaboration between Sheffield and Leeds helps young people from disadvantaged communities, including refugees, learn life skills through football – in line with the Generation Amazing methodology, which promotes communication, teamwork and leadership, along with diversity, inclusion, equal rights and communal solidarity.
Dolby said: “I’m looking forward to discussing how we’ve been able to work together to deliver the football for development sessions we provide for underprivileged youth in the Sheffield community, as well as how we plan to develop the sessions in collaboration with Generation Amazing and Leeds United.”
Moza Al Mohannadi, Generation Amazing’s Marketing & Communications Director, said: “We are extremely excited to welcome Chris Dolby to discuss our joint initiative in the UK. We also look forward to receiving some useful insight for our programme participants from European football legend Aron Winter.”
A Qatar 2022 social and legacy programme, Generation Amazing has reached 500,000 beneficiaries. It aims to positively impact 1 million people via unique football training methodology sessions by 2022.
