Statements to MCFTV

Duda

“We’re improving so much. We’re very happy. Javier, the director, is in 24-hour contact with us. We’re growing bit by bit in the residency. Everyone helps each other”.

“The players’ grades have improved so much. The most important thing for us isn’t the sporting aspect, it’s the human factor. When they leave, the ones who don’t make it as footballers, will remember Málaga as the place where they studied, and they can use their education to find work in the future”.

Javier Moreno

“My aim is to continue improving the facilities as much as possible, so that the kids feel at home, or better than being at home. The gym, for example, they have here, as well as a swimming pool and picnic facilities”.

“Studies are key. There comes a time when football ends and you need to have a plan ‘B’. In Spain and any other European country that plan ‘B’ stems from education”.
