    CD Leganes International Sporting Director and Coordinator visits Mees Palace Football Academy ahead of a potential partnership

    CD Leganes International Sporting Director and Coordinator visits Mees Palace Football Academy ahead of a potential partnership

    Faissal Chehade and Guillermo Gazapo, the International Sporting Director and Coordinator of Spanish Segunda División club CD Leganés visited Mees Palace Football Academy (MPFA) for four days ahead of a potential partnership signing between the Spanish Club.

    The conversations were initiated by the global league body of Spanish Football in Nigeria, LaLiga in November 2021 after the club sent merchandise and kits to help support our club during the annual Jos Chillin tournament.

    After a series of meetings in the first three months of this year, it was pertinent for the club to visit MPFA to see firsthand the work that has been put into it for half a decade and the last four days provided them with an opportunity to appreciate the work we have put in place so far.

    On Monday, May 23rd, both Faissal and Guillermo got right into the action as they had a tour of our facilities at D’ Cathedral while also getting to see our Permanent site location which is situated about 40km away from our current facility.

    Afterwards, they both made their way to our Partner school, St. Johns College, as they were welcomed by the Vice Principal of the school while giving Faissal and Gillemo a tour of the school. A few kilometers away from the school was the turn of Our Lady of Apostle Hospital, our partner Hospital for our boys and girls.

    The day ended with some light sessions with our U10s as Faissal had a dribble and shoot on mini-goals with them.

    On Tuesday, there was a Coaching clinic with our technical crew for about three hours with the entire crew having a practical session with MPFA’s U16 boys. The next day, there was a rescheduled league match between the boys and Dominion Starlight, one which ended 1-0 in favour of the opposing team.
