Margao: Dempo Sports Club coach Armando
Colaco will travel to Denmark along with the team`s youth
coach Mathew D`Costa and another official on June 5 to
interact with the local professional football team FC
Midtjylland and understand the European model of soccer.
Addressing a press conference here today, Colaco said
the visit is part of an agreement signed between F C
Midtjylland and Dempo.
The third person visiting Denmark is Rajiv Kulkarni,
Vice-President (Administration) Dempo Sports Club.
The main objective of the agreement is to help Dempo
prepare good footballers, Colaco said.
Dempo wishes that at least two Goa players get
training in Denmark and become footballers of international
repute, he said.
"We are visiting the (Danish) club to understand how
they function. We need to get a better understanding of the
European model and try and replicate the same here."
"When it comes to youth development, organisation and
the system, European clubs have proved to be unmatched.
Hopefully, we should be able to pick up a few tips during our
trip there," Colaco stated.
There will be a second visit to Denmark along with
Maurico Afonso, another Dempo coach, in July when it is summer
there and the youngsters train at FC Midtjylland, he said. "We
will study their modules which will help our boys here."
