A great weekend for me in Neuchatel . . . youngest son Dan completed his post grad degree and begins the rest of his life as an International Master in Management, Law and Humanities at Sport. The FIFA Masters is rated the best in Europe, and the second best in the world . . . with each semester of the program being held in different countries (De Montfort University in Leicester, Bocconi in Milan and Neuchatel in Switzerland. A class of 30 comprising 24 different nationalities . . . The graduation ceremony was beautiful – in the Chateau of Neuchatel – and the after match was a tour de force going on well into the early hours.
A few beers with Springbok legend Morne du Plessis (whose son Luc graduated with Dan, a budding lawyer extraordinaire) talking rugby, and a chat with Bayern Munich legend Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, whose son Henry also graduated, made the evening a truly sporting once . . . full of fun optimism and laughter.
Cheers Dan Roberts, MA . . . Manchester City awaits!
