Feb 27: After Dempo SC President Mr. Shrinivas V. Dempo picked up 33% share in FC Midtjylland, a leading football club in Denmark, Aniston Fernandes and Myron Fernandes were the first batch of promising youngsters selected by Mr. Dempo to train at the premier football academy of FC Midtjylland.
After the rigorous training stint at Denmark, Aniston feels that he has learnt a lot from those three months “Denmark experience was very useful for me as we play similar style of pressing football, hence I have learnt a lot by playing fast.” Says the teenager
When asked about his Denmark experience, young Aniston said “Initially It was very difficult for me to adjust to their fast pace, but later we got used to it. They used to play high passes as against the dribbling and ground passing played by us”, a technique which he says works well with the tall height of most European players.
Aniston, who was missing his partner Myron for the practice today, said that they are preparing well for the annual U-20 tournament and they have equal chances of making it to the finals “This tournament is very important for me as I have been practising hard. We have started the direct ball training method and we all look forward to qualify and winning the tournament”.
