English Premier League stars and legends to hold sports clinic at MBS in June

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand will lead a star-studded cast of English Premier League players and legends to Singapore next month for a charity football clinic.

The centre-back will be joined by Stoke City striker Peter Crouch and former players such as Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole, Ian Rush, Ian Wright, Jamie Redknapp and Les Ferdinand.

Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp and former managers Glenn Hoddle and Ossie Ardiles will also be present during the June 20 event at the Marina Bay Sands.

The footballers will teach a group of 80 students from selected charities the art of juggling, dribbling and taking a penalty kick at the Skating Rink in The Shoppes.

Members of the public will be able to catch the action from the levels above the rink, which offer unobstructed views.

Former Sunderland manager Peter Reid, who will also be among the celebrities present, said: "I'm really excited to be involved in what I'm sure is going to be a fun-filled event. Marina Bay Sands is a world-class venue, and I'm sure that the boys and I will have a fantastic time!"
