Khabib Nurmagomedov and a football legend from AC Millan, Clarence Seedorf, launched a football school that is said to have a mix of football and mixed martial arts methodology. The unique school is named The Seedorf Khabib Performance School under the SK Sports Holding. Khabib and Seedorf both founded SK Sports Holding headquartered in Dubai.
This news came out in Dubai on Monday. The purpose of this unique school is to facilitate the young generations to develop their sports and social abilities.
Seedorf said, “We have the same mission in life, we want to give something back to the young generations” to Arab News.
It seems like Khabib and Seedorf believe the methodology that they’re going to use is the best in supporting the youngsters and they want this project globally. “This is not a Dubai project; this is a global project. Our company is based in Dubai. We are going to bring in the knowledge, the coaches and methodology, monitoring and supporting from a marketing point of view to support the growth of each venue and each partnership.” said Seedorf.
Khabib Nurmagomedov and Clarence Seedorf are both legends of their respective sports. Khabib was an undefeated UFC lightweight champion with a 29-0 score. Seedorf was the only footballer to win the UEFA Champions League with three different clubs: Ajax, Real Madrid, and AC Milan.
Khabib is a big fan of football and met Clarence Seedorf back in 2020. Both legends quickly became friends and worked together to launch this school. Both have a lot of similarities in lifestyle and want to leave a positive impact on the next generation.
