We held a Thanksgiving dinner and launch of the Chelsea Soccer School in the Philippines at the Bellevue in Alabang. While waiting for dinner, Chelsea’s Managing Director for Asia Adrian New joins Journal’s TJ Jurado, Inquirer’s Cedelf Tupas, Phil and James Younghusband, and Simon Greatwich in watching the last five minutes of that stupendous match between Man City and QPR.
The Younghusband brothers relocated to the Philippines on August 18, 2009. It was a huge move for them and as the brothers told the story, they had to do non-football jobs to earn a living. Almost three years later, football has grown exponentially and now it is possible to have a career in the sport. Phil recounted an amazing story where he was thinking of buying with his own money some laser technology that is used during the Blues’ training. But it costs quite a lot. Maybe soon.
