The Real Madrid man showcased some of the training routines that the foundation runs, all of which were focused on technical, social, educative and moral aspects as well as on-field tactical practices.
Sánchez Muñoz reiterated the foundation's primary purposes to promote the intrinsic values of sport as an educational tool in the comprehensive development of those who practice it.
He said: "Real Madrid Foundation is delighted to work on promoting sports values as an educational instrument in the youth's development in the UAE.
"The coaches' training sessions that are currently underway are part of our endeavours to hold the supervisory, coordination, and evaluation mechanisms which ensure perfect functioning of Realmadrid Foundation Football Academy.”
