Sagnol skills inspire youngsters

Former FC Bayern München star, Willy Sagnol gave local youngsters a masterclass that they will remember forever as he joined Giovane Elber for a special skills clinic at the UEFA Champions Festival in Munich.

PRESENTER 1: Two former UEFA Champions League winners were on hand to offer some of their experience to local youngsters in Munich as part of the 2012 UEFA Champions Festival at the city's historic Olympiapark. (12 secs)

PRESENTER 2: Giovane Elber and Willy Sagnol, who both played in FC Bayern's triumph over Valencia in 2001, led a special 90-minute skills clinic for youngsters from local club FC Tirschenreuth, giving them advice and inspiration to help them follow their own dreams. (17 secs)

SAGNOL 1 (German): I don’t know if they can learn a lot, but we will definitely have fun; and fun for me was always the most important thing in my football career. Because without fun, football is not as nice any more. (12 seconds)

PRESENTER 3: The skills clinic taken by Elber and Sagnol was the first of a series of sessions over the week with other stars of the past, Jay-Jay Okocha, Cafu, Steve McManaman, Christian Karembeu, Celestine Babayaro and Patrik Andersson also passing on guidance in their role of UEFA grassroots ambassadors (20 secs)
