Barca Academy Pro trains Chinese youngsters
Haikou (China), Aug 15 (IANS) Barca Academy Pro Haikou Summer Camp ended at the Haikou Barca Academy Pro on Thursday. The summer camp lasted for five days and involved 134 young players from all over the country.

The summer Camp included nine training sessions and two theory lessons. The training content focussed on the basic concepts of the Barcelona style football, Xinhua news agency reported.

"I know my position and role in the game after training," Ma Chaoyang, who took part in the camp, said. "I want to be a football player like Lionel Messi when I grow up."

"We don't like to train athletes, we like to educate people to become a good person," said Manel Guerrero Arca, head coach of Barca Academy Pro.


"We use 'a way to play, a way to grow' as our motto and we teach the same methodology as in FC Barcelona - La Masia. We focus on five values -- humility, effort, ambition, respect and team work," he added.

Opened in February 2017, Barca Academy Pro Haikou is directly managed by FC Barcelona and it's a joint venture with the Mission Hills Group.

By now, more than 6,000 children aged between 6 and 14 have been trained by FC Barcelona coaches through the camps, programmes and local school courses.
