- Date Joined: 30th August 2016
Few months ago I had a Coaching internship at Polish Football Club (2018.05.22 – 29 ) – Rakow Czestochowa - Championship League Football Club – watching and participating in training sessions for U8-U16 teams, watching 1st team training sessions, learning football club philosophy that follows Portuguese methodology.
From 2018.05.02-10 – I went to FC BARCELONA ,La Masia and watched all youth training sessions and games U8-U16.
Last year I went to China with Tranmere Rovers FC and coached players U6-U14 (came back due to visa due date).
Since the beginning of 2017 I have been coaching for Leicester City Junior Foxes Development Center in Peterborough and work with players U6-U16. It’s a great experience as the technical level of players is a lot better than in grassroots football therefore I can run more challenging training sessions and can teach more about the game and tactics.Playing against other pre-development centers or development centers of clubs such as Crystal Palace FC, Nottingham Forest, Sheffield Wednesday is a great advantage of coaching for Foxes.
I also coached in the past 6/7 years for the grassroots team Park Farm Pumas in Peterborough - In the past 3 years 6 of my players went for a trials to Peterborough United FC and Leicester City Foxes Development Center respectively and successfully were admitted and since then all the players progressed through the ranks of the clubs.
I also coached for Vivacity Gym working with U6-U8 players.
I really enjoy coaching football and developing players and hopefully in the future I’ll have a chance to be a professional coach managing a team in Premier League or elsewhere.
My next step is either Academy Football with youth players or managing a professional team in the lower leagues anywhere in the world.
