Bal Singh said: "Having the opportunity to gain first-hand insight into the Manchester United set up will benefit the KFA, not only in the fixture against the European XI but also the KFA organisation's youth development.

"Having access to four of the training ground coaching staff and Denis Irwin was of benefit to me as a player and as a coach.

"As well as players participating in the regular five-a-side and Brazilian Soccer School classes, KFA have also plans to start an elite class which is for players who have the potential to progress."
