The graduates were welcomed with an opportunity to watch the U13, U14 and U15 training sessions. After the practice, the students were also present at three presentations. Koen Stam (Head of Methodology) and David Toxopeus (U15’s Head Coach) took the students through Feyenoord’s football vision from the first team to the Feyenoord Academy. Later during the day, the students followed a presentation led by Raymond van Meenen (Head of Operations) about the Academy strategy and culture . To finalise the series of presentations, the students were presented the physical training methodology by Chris Wenker (Coordinator of Physical Training). These series of presentations gave the students of the Real Madrid Graduate School the opportunity to gain valuable insights and information.
‘It’s a pleasure for us to be able to visit Feyenoord again’, said David Viejo Romero, Director of Master in Football Management at Real Madrid Graduate School. ‘We are always impressed by the progress the Feyenoord Academy makes. Getting better every year and showing us deeper and more interesting content, which is at the heart of the club’s youth program. Just as much, we always have a great time, enjoying the support and help of the Feyenoord staff who are always the nicest.’
The whole atmosphere is just right for our objectives. We are already looking forward to our next visit to the Feyenoord Academy. David Viejo Romero, Director of Master in Football Management at Real Madrid Graduate School
