Why does Man City’s academy always train outstanding talents?


In recent years, Man City’s academy has always produced many bright talents. Of course, they have secrets and strict regulations to achieve so much success.

Private school and transportation

Every Monday morning, Man City’s under-15 academy players will head to St. Bede to prepare for a new week of learning. Tuition for this school is up to 13,000 pounds/year.

There are people who have their parents pick them up and pick them up, and there are also many players who have to take the train or bus to get there on time for school. After finishing the teaching session, everyone will be taken by Man City’s bus straight to the team’s Football Academy in the early afternoon.

There, nutritious cereal meals have been prepared. According to Pep Guardiola’s request, all students must eat together. These meals are prepared by the academy’s nutrition experts to help the players have the best foundation to prepare for a training session to improve their skills.

“Everything at the academy is among the best, just for young players. Man City’s academy is even run as methodically as a football team in the Premier League,” a source said. said.


Invest effects

This professionalism and carefulness has brought Man City many benefits, as the young players growing up from their academy are shining in many teams across the English field. James McAtee, 21 years old, one of the first batch of the academy after the reform, is currently on loan at Sheffield United and has become a mainstay of this team. Not to mention Phil Foden, currently one of Man City’s brightest players, or Cole Palmer, who is gradually asserting an irreplaceable role at Chelsea.

As for Man City, their academy often produces many quality names. According to statistics, Man City has earned up to 150 million pounds just from selling academy players to other teams. That is also the direction for names that cannot compete in Pep Guardiola’s all-star squad, helping them become famous in many tournaments in England as well as throughout Europe.

Many years ago, president Khaldoon Al Mubarak decided to spend up to 200 million pounds just to reform Man City’s academy and youth training system. 10 years have passed, and experts can say that this is an extremely effective investment decision and is gradually generating profits. With strict financial fair play (FFP) laws, Man City’s model helps them aim for sustainable success in the long term.

Overall, the decision to recruit Rodolfo Borrell from Liverpool in 2014 has been showing effectiveness. In just 2 years as Technical Director at the academy, the Catalan man brought training methods from Barcelona to apply to the youth groups of the entire team. Although he did not hold this position and moved to the role of first team assistant in 2016 and is currently in charge at Austin FC, the foundation that Rodolfo Borrell built has become a solid foundation for the Etihad Stadium team.

“Rodolfo Borrell is a genius with his own way of thinking. He always has detailed notes for everything he does, and always does them in the most perfect way,” an employee at Man City revealed.

“When Rico Lewis, Phil Foden, or Cole Palmer in the past shined, the biggest problem wasn’t just their talent. It was their professional attitude and resilience in every situation. They were always on time, Cultivate both skills and cultural knowledge, do your homework diligently and treat people in an educated manner. When you are a better person, you will automatically become a better player. There is no secret when it comes to training young players.”

The future of Man City academy

Now, Man City’s academy is under the leadership of Thomas Kruecken. As a German, he brought strict discipline to upgrade Rodolfo Borrell’s foundation to a new level. Even the dress code must be neat, such as shirts must be neatly packaged. If they do not comply with the regulations, young players will face punishment. It can be said that Man City’s academy is an extremely strict environment aimed at success.

Not only that, Man City’s academy also trains players in the exact playing style that the first team is applying. They always play with a 4-3-3 formation, develop players in the right playing positions and have a systematic roadmap for development. They must even possess the ability to play a variety of positions, like the way Phil Foden is showing, or a potential player, Lakyle Samuel, can play well in every position in the youth team’s defense.

Man City’s academy can be strict and highly disciplined. But there, you will receive all the most favorable conditions for personal development. Pressure creates diamonds, and that is also the reason why excellent players are always ready to shine in Pep Guardiola’s first team whenever the opportunity arises.
