hy, my name is julius alpa or you can call me alpatinho which is my nickname who everybody calls me due to my skill with the ball my question is i am 12 years old i live in tanzania and how can i get a football trial with barcelona academy(la masia) or real madrid academy(la fabrica) because football is my life and i want to become a pro footballer

Hi Julius. First of all you should be a very good football player as there is a huge competition in Europe.I would recommend you to join youth academies of Bayern Munich , Ajax or Manchester city.
You register for the club either via. their home site, email, visit them personally etc. I think you then go for trials and they will then tell you if you're successful or not. I'm pretty sure that's the procedure.
Well you should obviously talk to your parents because they'll be funding everything for you. Without their support then you won't be able to travel and pay for fees etc.
Good Luck for your future and I would be happy to see youas next Franck Ribery.
For Byaern's youth Academy go to
for ajax
for Barcelona
I hope it would help you also ask your coach to talk to the in charge of different youth academies.
