For children from all over the country, a five day training session was completed by well-known football coaches from the Real Madrid Academy from Spain. Among them, in particular, are talented beginner football players who need special attention and social support. Participation in a football project for them was organized with the support of the chairman of the Odessa regional state administration Maxim Stepanov.

"For various reasons, not all of our talented children have reliable support nearby. However, they have dreams, and it is extremely important that they be carried out and the talent of the athletes unfold. That is why we build football fields and sports grounds, as well as implement such projects as this ", - said the chairman of the Odessa regional state administration Maxim Stepanov.

It should be noted that this is the first training in Ukraine under the unique program of the "Real Madrid" academy. Classes lasted from October 29 to November 2. The project was attended by children aged 7 to 16 years. Applications were sent by parents, whose children are engaged in football, and those who are in difficult living conditions: settlers, orphans or poor or crisis families in Odessa and in the region.

"If you have a dream, you have to go to it, even when it's very difficult," said Maxim Stepanov during a conversation with young football players who shared the impressions of training.

Recall that the project of the Real Madrid Academy has been implemented in 66 countries around the world. The training program from the ex-president of the soccer club of the same name Lorenzo Sanz consists of studying techniques, psychology, strategy and tactics of the game.
