Madrid coaches bring Real magic to Cambodia

They’re the biggest, most successful football club in the world, famous for the endless parade of trophies and ‘Galacticos’ and in 2012 coaches from Real Madrid came to show HFCA how they do it.

HFCA got the opportunity to work with the club as they gave a special training session to 70 youngsters from our partner Center for Children's Happiness in Phnome Penh. The following day, seven of HFCA’s coaches were also given a special coaching training session by the Madrid staff to show them how to nurture the talent of the future.
Roeun Ren, Theara Kung, Hithyrith Han, Thavry Chory, Sovanareth Keo and the Chan brothers Sophondara and Rithy, who are all ex- Homeless World Cup players, successfully completed the Real Madrid Coaches Clinic.

They say the biggest trees come from the smallest seeds. Perhaps the Ronaldo, Beckham or Zidane of the future could come from the Phnom Penh streets. Either way, HFCA were thrilled to be able to show what is possible.
