Former Real Madrid player Michel Salgado will be the guest speaker at all of the five soccer clubs in Dubai clubs this week, the Dubai Sports Council said in a conference on Friday.

Michel Salgado plans to give motivational speeches at both the al-Wasl and Dubai clubs on Monday, then at al-Ahli, al-Nasr and al-Shabab later in the week.

“… We are keen to ensure the young sportsmen at our clubs get a feel of what it means to be a true professional while pursuing sports,” said Dr. Ahmed Al Sharif, Secretary General of the Dubai Sports Council.

“This is the main idea behind inviting famous stars to come and address our clubs in Dubai,” noted

“In the past we have had some famous footballers and other sportspersons come and address our clubs and I am confident that such interactive sessions can only benefit the individuals and help the clubs move along the path of professionalism,” he added.

Last month, football star Diego Maradona announced he will play in the Dubai Sports Council squad as they prepared to take on defending champions Dubai Municipality in the government sector’s Over-38 football competition.
