Former Bianconeri defender Robert Kovac displayed his support for the Juventus International Soccer Schools project by meeting youngsters involved in this week’s training camp held in his native Croatia.
After being officially confirmed during a press conference in Zagreb back in March, the decision to hold summer camps in Umag, a tourist city lying on the border with Slovenia, has proved a resounding success, attracting almost 100 participants in its first week.
Kovac, who represented Juventus between 2005 and 2007, watched the budding talents put through their paces by Bianconeri coaches before signing autographs and posing for photos to round off a memorable day for all concerned.
His visit was organised to mark the end of the first ever summer training camp in Umag, with the second scheduled to get underway at the start of next week.
The initiative, involving children between eight and 16 years of age, will now also be open to girls.
