Experts suggest that it takes millions of touches of the ball in preparation for professional football and the Spaniards have taught us that football is not about size but about speed and technical ability. The development of technical skills is a significant learning process for any player that has to be taught early and by professionals that can demonstrate the technique properly. Once a skill is learnt, it needs to be practiced thousands of times under expert supervision in order to develop the necessary speed required in professional football.
Like any sport, to reach a professional level you need to be taught by professionals, which is why the Football School and Goalkeeper Academy is run by experienced coaches who played the game professionally.
