Alberto Tavira Molina has begun his second season as coach of Barca Academy Hungary, and he will have new responsibilities this year. We asked our coach about these responsibilities, the lessons learned from the first season and his footballing past in the wake of the Barca Academy Hungary Cup.

Martí Nadal Velasco has been working at our academy for more than a year now, but the 2022-2023 season was the first he spent at Barca Academy Hungary from start to finish. We also spoke to our professional director about the lessons learned from the season behind us, the challenges of the next championship year and the summer break.

This is not Alberto Tavira Molina's first stop in the world: after a successful project in Jordan, he came to Budapest as an acquaintance to use his valuable experience to help Barca Academy Hungary develop. The professional moved to the country six months ago, and among other things, we asked him about the challenges he faced in his first days, his views on the current state of Hungarian football, and of course, his favourite food.

"The most important thing is to get through to the children's emotions", says Enric Romero, one of our academy coaches who arrived this summer. In the next part of our series, we interviewed the head of the training base in Hidegkút, who is using his American experience to try to raise the level of academy training in Hungary. The Qatar World Cup, the future of Hungarian football and the goulash soup, a favourite dish of foreigners, were also discussed.

After Sergi Badal, we continue our series of interviews with Ricardo Gil Moreira, from Penafiel, just 30 kilometres from Porto, whose adventurous life has brought him to Hungary for the third time. The 34-year-old also spoke about the difficulties of the past, his integration, his philosophy of life and his ambitions for the future, and said that for the time being he is focusing on the present and not on the future.

After Villarreal, Valencia, Coventry and Barcelona, Sergi Badal, just 24 years old, has found himself in Budapest as one of the new coaches of our academy. We asked the head coach of the 2007 and 2011 Reds about his experiences in Hungary, his career so far and his future goals. In his spare time, he enjoys attending Hungarian league matches, his dream is to reach La Liga and he loves goulash soup.

Barca Academy Hungary invited children to a public training session at its new training base in Hűvösvölgy over the weekend. More than 50 children showed their skills to the professionals of the official FC Barcelona Academy in Hungary. 

Barca Academy Hungary has taken a step forward: the official football academy of FC Barcelona in Hungary is now organising its international youth tournament, the 2nd Barca Academy Hungary Cup, with the participation of seven foreign teams, including the parent club. As a testament to the academy's spectacular growth and success, they will open their third training centre in Hűvösvölgy in September.

As we approach the end of 2021, the last days of the year naturally leave us with nothing to do but look back on the year behind us. Our first interviewee is Rubén Morales, our Technical Director, with whom we talked mainly about the challenges of the coronavirus epidemic, the successes we have had and the challenges ahead.
