MILANELLO – All the club’s Youth Sector coaches were on hand at the Milanello sports centre where they watched the first team train at 11.00.
After training, Clarence Seedorf had luck with the Youth Sector staff at around 13.00 followed by a technical meeting to discuss training methodologies.
Youth Sector head Filippo Galli spoke to the Milan Channel at the margins of the event:
“Seedorf wanted to meet all the Youth Sector staff to induce similar footballing principles at all levels of the club, giving an identity to all teams at all levels. It’s a good idea to hear what everyone has to say about the road that we’re on. Then it’s up to the club to implement and it’s my job to make sure that what is done is done well. We want growth on top of performances, a formative type of football. A victory for us is to see one of our players in the first team. The Youth Sector has to be strategic both at a technical level and a structural level. The desire is to improve but we won’t limit ourselves to that. We’re looking at what’s happening around us to help us continue to improve”.
