MILAN – This week Yuto Nagatomo won’t be the only Japanese player wearing blue and black. For the last few days 18 kids from Inter Academy Japan, accompanied by three of their coaches, have been hosted by Inter in Milan.
It’s been a huge success in terms of coaching and organisation, as evidenced by the incredible numbers and high-level educational and sporting results. This comes down to the hard work of coach Massimo Ciocci and the Inter Academy staff that keeps up with each aspect of the project as they fine-tune every detail.
Another big thanks goes out to the 'Black and Blue Stripes', our local partner in Japan.
During their stay in Italy the youngsters will take part in training sessions at the Centro Sportivo Giacinto Facchetti, as well attending a few games of the Youth Academy teams. On Thursday they were at the San Siro to watch Inter v Udinese. Today, after watching the first team’s training session in Appiano Gentile, they got the chance to meet their idol Yuto Nagatomo - the highlight of their dream trip to Italy and sure to provide Nerazzurri memories of a lifetime.
