Carta de presentación:

To whom it may concern,

Football is my passion. Since I was a kid my life turned around a ball. I always thought that studies were the most important for my future, but nothing made me happier than spending my time playing and watching football.
For a long time, I played football and at the same time coached different youth teams, managed Youth Categories of my beloved Club (Gran Peña FC) and coached RCCelta de Vigo U12s. Also, I founded and managed an amateur club for six years which allowed me to understand football from all perspectives.
After a great couple of sessions handling the senior team of GRAN PEÑA F.C. (Spain 5th Tier) and finishing UEFA PRO LICENSE course, I took the decision of becoming professional, so I accepted the opportunity to move abroad and work for Arsenal Soccer Schools in India as Technical Director.
On September 2017, I joined the pioneer Laliga Academy in Dubai after being selected by Laliga Headquarters. I was an important part of a big project from scratch, reaching more than 800 hundred boys in one year. On May 2018, I was promoted to be Head Coach for Laliga High Performance Centre in Dubai where we scouted, trained and promoted the best talented players across UAE.
On July 2019, I have joined Al Qadsia Sporting Club from Kuwait as U20 Head Coach and Assistant Coach for First team. It was a great experience to be part of the most popular club from Kuwait and share trainings and matches with some international players. Unfortunately, it was not possible to finish the project where I had huge expectations.
Currently, I am looking for new challenges that allow me to keep growing as professional. I got experience managing huge Football Academies, youth teams and senior teams in Spain and Internationally. I have learnt from some of the most recognized football methodologies in the world (Arsenal, Laliga and RC Celta de Vigo) and I have developed my own methods and ideas. I want to keep learning and sharing my knowledge and experience
I am passionate, hardworking, perseverant, creative, competitive, emphatetic and a good leader to command projects as Head Coach or Technical Director for Clubs or Academies. Luckily, I was always loved where I have been working and I keep good memories and knowledge from all my former roles. I am sure I will be a great asset to boost your project.

I hope you consider my profile and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Kind Regards,
Martín Blanco
