‘Bosnian’ School of Football in London

first_imgThe B&H football player Haris Hodžić who lives in London, former member of English Club Watford, opened a football school London -HH11 football academy in the suburbs of London, where boys from 6 to 16 years old will learn football skills.“I have spent all my life in football and similar schools. I started in a private academy, here in Hertfordshire. There, I was noticed by scouts of the football club Watford, where I passed all their young teams and progressed to the first team. Thus, I know how the system of these schools works and what the coaches and future football players expect. I will give the chance to young players of my academy to receive daily trained under the supervision of qualified football experts”, said Hodžić, adding that he initially plans to play friendly football matches against other academies and other professional clubs.However, he is planning from the next season to establish his own youth teams and engagement in regular league competitions.“The goal of this program is to discover potential talents, to prepare good players and then to recommend them to professional clubs for further training. We have agreed on close cooperation with scouts and coaches from English clubs Watford, Stevenage, Northampton, Coventry and with some other European clubs. Also, during my stay in B&H and while playing for B&H Premiere League, I have established excellent cooperation with Rudar from Prijedor and Olimpiko. So, we have a plan to make connections for talents from B&H, who want to be part of local clubs”, said Hodžić, noting that the former Croatian youth representative Milan Krmpotić will take part in the academy, who during his career played for several Croatian, Czech and Slovak teams.All interested for the academy can sign in at the Facebook group: HH11 football academy.(Source: Radiosarajevo.ba)last_img read more
