Lionel Messi’s Catalan-based Soccer school setting up clinics to train Indian kids

If soccer is going to be the next craze, then it will really improve the Indian sports scene.  And with such schools entering India to mentor and prepare Indian player, such a possibility could be there in future.

FCBescola, the school that taught the likes of Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas the basics of football, will kick-start in India in April 2013, it was announced on Wednesday.  Having organised clinics almost all over India under the supervision of Antonio Claveria, Technical Director -FCBEscola India, FC Barcelona and Conscient Football will now start their “most ambitious project” as the Catalan club termed it, with a capacity to train a total of 300 kids in the age group of 6-16 years.

“India is our most ambitious project, given the growing interest of football in the country. We have seen great talent while conducting FCB camps across the country. The Escola will certainly bring the much required impetus to grassroots training in India,” Claveria said on Wednesday.
