The professor Director of Coach Education for the Royal Belgian Football Association provided a special training session to the students of the Master in Football Coaching and Management.

Krist, instructor of the UEFA PRO licence course in Spain, Belgium, Italy and France, as well as well-know analyst of the Belgium football selection during the World Cup 2018 in Russia, has visited the School to show us how one of the most successful sports methodologies works, since they’ve managed to become the number 1 football election in FIFA, ranking for the first time in 2015, and have “created” talents such as Eden Hazard and the Belgian goal keeper Courtois, who currently plays with Real Madrid.

The students have been able to learn in depth about the development of the Belgium federation, how they’ve created a style when it comes to football education and game style for the “Red Devils”. They’ve also learnt about the future of this sport, and most importantly, about how to identify talent between players in different positions.

It was, without a doubt, a great educational experience for the students of the Master in Football Management from the Real Madrid Graduate School Universidad Europea.
