Sporting de Braga and Desportivo da Huila celebrate partnership for football education

Sporting de Braga and the Desportivo da Huila club entered into an exchange partnership, in the province of Huila, with the aim of training footballers in the region.


The information was provided by the president of the Portuguese club António Salvador, who is visiting Angola and said that his association will take Angolan talents to Portugal to be 'polished'.

"We are going to transfer our knowledge here, exchange staff to be able to train other people at the club, take athletes to Braga to be trained and have the possibility of reaching the main team", he said.

He also mentioned that some Braga players will be loaned to the club in order to strengthen the squad in domestic and African competitions, in addition to highlighting the fact that the Portuguese club has the knowledge, capacity, methods and human resources to support the development of national football.

António Salvador justified, on the other hand, the reason for choosing the province of Huila, with geographical and climatic aspects.

"We chose Huila because it has leaders, partners like Omatapalo who challenged them. We analyzed and saw that the leaders have a vision of the future of sport in the province and that follows that of Sporting Clube de Braga in its expansion. It has geographical and climatic conditions very close to ours, producing more capable athletes and players for European sport", he explained.

The Desportivo da Huila club, in turn, through its general manager Carlos Manuel, said that the partnership does not last long and, in a first phase, does not involve financial costs, limiting itself to receiving training and exchange visits of experiences.

He highlighted the need that the club has, from the point of view of sports training, with regard to training football coaches. "Right now we need training for coaches, because coaching children is not the same thing as adults, talent is innate, but we don't have the knowledge of football as such, both coaches and players", he admitted.

The manager expressed his desire to see Desportivo da Huila winning titles as a result of investments in training.

António Salvador and his entourage are in Angola on a three-day visit at the invitation of the governor of Huila province, Nuno Mahapi, to identify possible areas of investment, starting with football.
