Mike Phelan has worked with the likes of David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo and now the former Manchester United coach has taken on a hundred students in Peterborough.

He's swapping the world of professional football to help develop the grassroots of the game.

Mike played for Norwich City in the mid-1980s and was also the team's caretaker manager in 2015.

"I've lived in this world of professional football, but it's refreshing sometimes to get out and see what's going on and see the energy of youth, because it's the youth that really carries you forward.

"I'm not youthful anymore, I'm the other way, but these give you the energy to go again."
