Sunderland’s Head of International Football Development Graham Robinson is in Ghana as part of the Black Cats partnership with Asante Kotoko. 

Robinson has observed the Porcupines first team training session.

He also held an intense training session with the Porcupine’s under-17s team.

The players from the team who have been hand-picked from regional school games displayed a no fear attitude which impressed Graham.

Graham said: “The boys have been fantastic to work with, they’re technically very good and attentive making it very easy for me to do my job.”

As part of the partnership, Sunderland send out a representative from the club four times a year to assist with on-going youth development at Asante Kotoko.

In September last year, Sunderland’s international development coach Gordon Chisholm also visited the club.
