If you have questions like: What is the best way to develop a young footballer? What qualities should you focus on when developing players? What should you train for different ages? How come one of the most succesful academies in the world produce so many world class players with relatively small recourses? - Then this is the course for you!

You will get the answers to these and many other questions about youth training from the academy manager from Europe's perhaps the foremost talent factory!
