Tariqe turns coach to help in community

Brentford attacked Tariqe Fosu helped run a football session for children from home last week. Tariqe, who joined The Bees from Oxford United in January, transformed his flat into a training ground as he coached children from Brentford FC Communty Sports Trust’s Football Development Centre. The live online session was part of the Trust’s #BeeatHome campaign, which encourages children to remain active within their homes or local area.

Tariq, who joined Brentford FC in the January transfer window, was more than happy to coach the budding young footballers through a range of drills. He watched them trying them out and gave feedback during the 45-minute video call. See the best bits of the session below.

Luke Brooks-Smith, Head of Community Sport at Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, said: “It was amazing to have Tariqe join our Football Development Live Lesson. Our players had the opportunity to virtually train alongside him, receive praise and constructive feedback on the techniques they were practicing and spend time asking him questions around his diet, training regime and players he admired. The feedback from players and parents has been amazing, with a number of the players saying they felt proud to train alongside a Brentford player.”
