WHY WE ARE THE BEST
A football academy is a place where junior footballers learn the skills to become professionals. For young players, one goal is shared above all, to learn the foundations and master the technique in order to become world class stars. This should also be the approach of the academy itself.
It cannot be disputed that the future belongs to the youth. This rings true with football also. Nurturing talent from a young age has always been key to the success of any football setup. However, there is no golden rule on how to develop young players into the football stars of tomorrow. This is not a bad thing. On the contrary, this allows for flexibility since what works for one doesn’t always work for another. So too is it important to engage with new ventures which come to market and to explore the unexplored, allowing for the application of our own models, culminating in a synthesis of the new and the old.
