Testimonials from past participants

Since I have been in Madrid, I have never stopped thinking about football and above all looking for opportunities to grow. This opportunity was given to me by Atlético de Madrid.

I had the privilege of being able to live closely, one of the most beautiful and strongest academies in the world. Methodology, competition, education, sacrifice and wining mentality are values that are transmitted to all the people who cross the door of the Academy sports centre.

I thank the Atletico de Madrid family and all their staff in the technical area, psychology, scouting, physical preparation for the wonderful presentations about the Academy.

It was an honour to meet Gabi and Fernando Torres, two symbols of Atlético de Madrid who every day transmit the values of the Club to all the people who work in the different training complexes.

I will take everything with me, from the first training session, to the last of it, from the U-18 Youth League match against Liverpool, to the U-19 Championship match against Leganés.

Simeone’s signature can be felt in every single moment.
