However he is lucky enough to make his way to Germany to undergo six year long special coaching in football at this very tender age”-said sports organizer cum chairman of Mangaldai Municipality Board Pratap Bordoloi while inaugurating the one month long summer football coaching camp at Balipota near Deomornoi in Darrang district on Sunday.
