3 Chinese boys chosen to train at Barcelona youth academy
    2017-September-1  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

MORE than 1,000 students have attended the first ever Barcelona soccer training camps at the Mission Hills Haikou resort in China and three children have been singled out by one of the world’s most famous soccer clubs for more training at its headquarters in Spain.

The three Chinese boys will attend the same youth academy at the Camp Nou Stadium in the Spanish capital that produced superstars like Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta.

Ten-year-old Li Shibo plus eight-year-olds Lang Dacheng and Zhan Zhijie are all from Haikou city.

Barcelona sent 10 of its coaches to host a series of training camps at the FCB Escola Soccer School and in local schools on the tropical Chinese island of Hainan.

The four-time Champions League winner announced a partnership with the Mission Hills Group in February, which sees the club managing and operating a soccer school outside of Barcelona for the first time in its 118-year history.

“These were our first training camps since opening our FCB Escola at Mission Hills Haikou and we were overwhelmed by the response,” said Pau Lopez Mesquida, a former FC Barcelona youth player who has moved to Haikou to oversee the project.

“There was a huge amount of talent on show but all the coaches were particularly impressed by the three kids, Lang, Li and Zhan so we want to take them under our wing and invite them to the Nou Camp for more training.”

“I am so excited to be going to Spain for the first time to train with FC Barcelona,” said Lang. “The classes were an amazing experience as we got to work with the Barca coaches, wear the Barca kit and learn skills we have never been taught at school before. We also learned about the Barca values of tolerance, respect, unity and friendship.”

The FCB Escola in Hainan is located at the Training Base of the fully-integrated Mission Hills resort in the capital city of Haikou. Also appointed by the China Football Association as its southern China training headquarters, the Training Base will span 345,000 square meters when fully complete, featuring 20 soccer pitches and other state-of-the-art academy facilities.

With superstar Ronaldinho in attendance last February, Barcelona and Mission Hills also announced the club’s first overseas Interactive Center at Mission Hills Centreville, a unique experience that will bring the excitement of Barca and its legendary players to fans across China.(SD-Agencies)
