Reipas reaping the rewards

We visit the club where Jari Litmanen and Joonas Kolkka started out.

The likes of Jari Litmanen and Joonas Kolkka started out at grassroots club FC Reipas so the UEFA Training Ground decided to talk to the chairman, coach and other former players to see what makes the Finnish grassroots club so special.
