Havana: Top Spanish football club Real Madrid has opened a training camp in Havana for Cuban children.
Some 100 boys and girls selected from eight schools in Havana attended the first day of training here on Monday as part of a programme designed to teach values through football, reports Xinhua.
The five-day football clinic, at the Eduardo Saborit sports complex in the city’s Playa district, will focus on a different aspect of the game each day, including leadership, teamwork and respect for others, according to Joaquin Sagues, director of the club’s Campus Experience programme.
