A new football academy in Liverpool will offer world class football coaching for children of all abilities.
Premier Football Academy, based at North Liverpool Academy, launches this week and will offer evening drills and skills sessions with pre-academy training for ages five and six, and full academy training for ages seven to 16.
First session is free for all children, and once signed up, costs £10 per session thereafter. Sessions last 90 minutes. Its coaches are all fully-qualified from FA Level 2 right up to UEFA A licence.
Award-winning, head coach Milen Tanev working previously with the likes of Real Madrid, Lazio, Bayern Munich and Premier League Fulham is bringing Europe’s best training systems, methods and ideologies here to Liverpool.
He said: “What sets Premier Football Academy apart is the high standard of inclusive football training we provide. It is second to none. Our coaches have a real hunger and passion for the game, and are committed in giving our youngsters the very best training possible, transforming talented individuals into confident team players.
“It is a particular thrill to come to Liverpool – the city’s history and status in the game is undeniable, and I’m looking forward to sharing the skills and knowledge I’ve picked up throughout my career with Merseyside’s football stars of tomorrow. Most importantly, the sessions will be fun.”
Starting his career in Bulgaria and representing his nation at a youth level, Mr Tanev’s footballing path eventually led him to England, with Wimbledon FC the first club to recognise his coaching ability.
Moving on to work at Craven Cottage, the former goalkeeper then won the FA Outstanding Contribution award in 2017, with his track record in the youth game now seen as unrivalled.
