Ten UK schools involved in the Inter Academy Experience programme were invited to take part in a virtual meet & greet with Ashley Young. The initiative, which was realised in collaboration with Inter Academy partner Inspiresport - a leading British business in high-performance sports development tours, allowed 20 pupils and teachers to chat with the Nerazzurri full-back through a series of questions, which ranged from facts on his life, anecdotes and his experiences throughout his career in the Premier League and Serie A.
The Nerazzurri’s number 15 underlined how fundamental determination, hard work and a constant desire to grow have been in his life and in his professional career: “They were ready to challenge me and it was the turning point. I didn’t look back; I only looked forward!”
The meeting was a really educational experience for everyone involved and was a chance to go into greater depth into a series of topics related to passion for football. You can listen to the chat here.
