Pablo Fornals: “It’s wonderful to see all the children smiling and enjoying the event.  It wasn’t long ago since we were here, and it was amazing to have a player come to visit us.  It’s very important they look after themselves, eat healthily and study hard.”

Yamila: “This is very important as it encourages the boys and girls to grow in all aspects of life.  And for us, we need to be an example for them to follow their dreams and be someone in life.”
