The Youth Academy is on break due to National Team matches. Some of the coaches are using the time to visit some of the top clubs in Europe including Ajax, Alkmaar and Paris Saint Germain.
The group that went to Holland included the Under-19 Coach Guy Tzarfati, his assistant Nissim Dvash along with U17 assistant coach Jeffrey Yishai and Academy Scout Ran Elias. The coaches visited Ajax Amsterdam where they were impressed by the training facilities and attended training sessions for both the First Team and the youth clubs as well as meeting Ajax Head Coach Erik ten Hag.
Following the trip to Ajax, the group also visited Alkmaar and saw the training facilities as well as First Team and youth club sessions.
At the same time, Under-15 Head Coach Ori David headed to Paris Saint Germain where he attended their league match against Marseille. David also saw their youth team train under the direction of coach Thiago Motta.
The goal of these continuing education visits is to increase connections with some of the Europe’s top clubs while also learning from them as well.
