THE blockbuster mega hit movie that was Shaolin Soccer has become a reality!
Kung fu mecca The Shaolin Temple in China has established a kung fu soccer school, and a group of 40 monks are being taught to combine football with the ancient martial art by a group of retired Chinese pros.
Head of training Shi Yanlu said: “Kung Fu has a lot of similarities with football.
“Right now China’s football performance is really disappointing. We hope by combining Kung Fu elements and spirit Chinese football can perform better.”
Rumours Nigel De Jong has signed up have yet to be confirmed.
