Madrid legends strut their stuff in Malaysia
Continuing on their quest to raise the standards of Malaysian grassroots football, MyPadang welcomed five football legends consisting of former Real Madrid stars Fernando Morientes, Michel Salgado and Aitor Karanka together with local football heroes Syed Adney and Robbie Cornthwaite, in a friendly match against five skilled grassroots players.
In a stunning 30-minute match between Team Legends and Team NIVEA MEN, Malaysia’s young grassroots players were given the experience of a lifetime. Digging deep and pitting their best efforts against legendary football stars, the game was a spectacular showcase of team spirit and camaraderie amongst all players on the pitch – where it didn’t matter who won or lost.
“Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would have a chance to play against football legends like I did today – but thanks to NIVEA MEN and MyPadang, this dream came true! We are so grateful for this opportunity and learning experience – it was truly invaluable”, said Muhammad Hiqmar Daniel bin Hidzir from Team NIVEA MEN.
