AC MILAN, 'MISSIONE MACEDONIA'
The Milan Junior Camp will be present in Macedonia for the first time, taking place in Skopje in collaboration with FC Rabotnicki Kometal and with the Marco Schembri World Camp, the official for all the camps in Eastern Europe.
The camp will run from July 16 to 20 where over 300 children between the ages of 9 and 16 will take part in training with Milan coaches.
AC Milan legend, Daniele Massaro was present at the press conference at the official launch in Skopje and to welcome the guests Kosta Kostovski, FC Rabotnicki Kometal Vice President. Now the Milan Youth Project has a presence in a good 46 countries.
After a year of negotiations we are bringing one of the biggest names in football to our country," said Rabotnicki vice-president Kosta Kostovski. "It's a great chance for young Macedonian talents to work with coaches from one of the greatest teams in Europe."
Massaro was well aware that the “Pandevs” of tomorrow could well be among the trainees at the Milan camp. "I'm proud that I came to Skopje and I hope some of young players who will participate in this camp will be the stars of Macedonian football and the national team one day."
"Why, in the future should some talented player from Macedonia not come in Italy to play for Milan, the same way as Goran Pandev plays for S.S. Lazio? If Rabotnicki win the title this season, we could meet up in the UEFA Champions League next season." He added.
MD: This is a wonderfull oppurtunity for all Macedonian talents and let’s hope we will see some of them playing at Milan or other big clubs in the future, also maybe they will manage to get a friendly between Rabotnicki and Milan, that would be even better! :)
