Barca coaches jet in today

HARARE - Coaches from Spanish football giants Barcelona are expected to jet into the country on Monday morning for a two-day coaching programme with the local coaches.

Isaac Oriol Guerero Hernandez, who is head co-ordinator of Barcelona’s football school and project co-ordinator Daniel Alsina will embark on a programme which is aimed at equipping Premiership coaches with new coaching trends employed by the Spanish club.

The programme which is being facilitated by Delta Beverages, the official sponsor of the local Premiership through their brand – Castle Lager – will also see Premiership club captains together with all national team coaches attending.

The course which will also see participants receive certificates of attendance will be held at the National Sports Stadium.

This programme is part of the new partnership between Castle Lager and the Catalan giants. 

Last year, Castle Lager and Barcelona entered a three-year deal which made them the official African beer of the Blaugrana.

After their visit to Harare, the two coaches are also expected to visit Zambia and Tanzania for a similar programme.

“We are very excited about this opportunity to come to Africa and work with some of the young talent and share our skills and expertise with them,” Daniel Bigas Alsina said.

“We work with some of the best players in Europe and these clinics will give local players access to the Tiki Taka football styles that we are famous for.”

Barcelona’s financial vice-president Javier Faus added: “FC Barcelona is committed to giving back to the communities around the world that support us. “These clinics are a sign of our appreciation to our fans on the continent and will also be a form of skills transfer directly from our coaches to local players.”

These coaching clinics will be used as a preamble to other similar initiatives that will be implemented by Castle Lager and Barcelona on the continent to support the team’s supporters and the lager’s consumers.
