The ties between OL and China continue to get stronger. Months after the club signed a training partnership in China with the Chengdu Football Association at the end of October 2018, Julien Sokol continues his work in the field. The Academy's athletic and administrative coordinator went to Chengdu to represent the club during the Panda Cup, an international tournament held last weekend with the U18 teams from China, New Zealand, Thailand and South Korea.


Julien Sokol spoke during a conference that brought together representatives of the Asian confederation, the technical director of China, the deputy mayor of Chengdu, as well as professional coaches and heads of local training centers. His presentation focused on the OL training project, tactical work and the importance of mental preparation. He also took the opportunity to visit the Chengdu Federation Training Center and attend youth team sessions. A very beautiful initiative.
