Jonatan Cabanelas is currently utilising his professional coaching experience as Training Coordinator at Qatar’s Aspire Academy, working alongside Technical Director Edorta Murua.
Having previously worked together at Athletic Club Bilbao and Club Universidad de Chile, Cabanelas and Murua have developed a methodology that has been proven to challenge coaches and help to develop creative and adaptable players. Their methodology has been adapted by various European teams to develop their elite football talents.
Cabanelas is currently drawing on his professional coaching experience to mould young footballers into professional athletes of the future at Qatar’s Aspire Academy.
Cabanelas’ keynote presentation and practical demonstration at IFCCA will teach delegates how to develop autonomous, self-thinking players, and focus on his role in developing a progressive and systematic training program for both coaches and players at the Aspire Youth Academy in Doha.
