Ferran is born and bred from Catalonia, Spain.
And as a Catalan, Ferran comes from a very specific football culture.
We know it as the Barcelona system.
The Catalan way of football and its football philosophy and playing style come as a consequence of cultural and community values.
This translates into highly technical, associative dynamics and attacking style, much to the joy of players and of the fans.
In fact, anyone who has seen Barcelona play will understand the joy and passion this style of play provides.
Football (soccer) has been a part of Ferran's life since he was a child - and naturally, F.C. Barcelona is the team of his life.
He has coached and been coached under the 'Barcelona System', played in both Catalonia (Spain) and England
and been a member of the Football Federation in both countries.
Prior to moving to Australia, (two years ago), he was Youth Coach in Montseny, Catalonia for his previous ten years.
Upon arriving in Australia, he was snapped up by the Morton Soccer School in Hobart which is linked with South Hobart FC (effectively the NPL in TAS).
And then upon moving to Melbourne, he snapped up by a leading NPL Club.
Looking for a small change from 'traditional' coaching, we asked if he would be our Technical Director of Coaching ...
... a natural extension of his expertise ... and pass his extensive knowledge to our coaches and kids.
Having completed his FFA 'C' Licence course, we are excited to have Ferran lead our coaching development and the technical development of our kids.
