FC Porto Academy coaches Fransisco Couto and Joao Pedro are in Zimbabwe to train junior players and academy coaches.

By Bhora Afrika

The coaches’ four-day visit is part of FC Porto’s World Camp Dragon Force initiative which aims to introduce the Portuguese club’s training methodology and culture to local players aged between 13 and 17.

It runs from 14 to 17 March.

Several players drawn from various academies and schools are set to benefit from the training sessions.

Local academy, Royal Oak, which has a partnership with FC Porto, is hosting the programme.

Training sessions are being conducted at St John’s College in Borrowdale.

Couto and Pedro will also conduct a coaching clinic to capacitate local academy coaches.

Royal Oak academy has become the second local football institution in recent times to form a partnership with a European club.

In 2020, Gerald Sibanda’s Athletes Sphere Management entered into a partnership with Spanish club Real Betis to form Real Betis Academy Zimbabwe
