What do you like the most about coaching?
I love teaching the kids how to understand the game that I love. The coach needs to know that he’s a role model for the players and we have the responsability not only to teach the game but also to teach the values of what is a good human being, of how to live in society, cooperate with the teamates, tha the player needs his team to go further, and that’s how we have to do in sports but also in life.
Why should youth players join NF Academy?
NF Academy gives the opportunity for these kids to have a different experience of how to practice and learn football, a different methodology. At the same time, NFAcademy gives the opportunity for the players to experience a different kind of camps, to balanced the level of the players giving them a difficult and complex context, which is going to give them a good environment to improve not only the technical and tactical skills but the psychological strength, improve self-confidence and allow the players to be the best they can be.
