Italian giants AC Milan are all set to launch football academies in India. Alessandro Gianni, manager of international academies of the club, had recently paid a visit to India to decide suitable places to launch the academies.
During his visit Gianni took a particular note of the football craze in Kerala, and so now the club is set to launch academies in the state. The Serie A Giants will launch academies in Kozhikode, Ernakulam and Malappuram districts.
The club will train young players between ages 5-16 for which renowned grassroot coaches will land in the country. Besides talented youngsters will also get a taste of the main academy of the club located in Milan.
The trials for recruitment at the academies will begin soon after they begin operation, which is likely to start in September.
