Head coach Vicente Del Bosque signed the wall fame, where all sports legends and VIP guests of the academy mark their signatures. He was so amazed by the idea and concept of Aspire and keeping asking about the Academy’s football talents and the way they are scouted.

Two of Spanish football legends, Fernando Heirro and Raul Gonzales, have been in the tour and kept talking to the players about the Qatari football development as both of them know pretty much well the local league through their experience previously, as for Hierro in Al- Rayyan Club, and currently for Raul with Al- Sadd club.

The Spanish stars were really amazed by what they saw in the academy and especially the indoor football stadium where they stayed longer during the tour.
