International football youth tournament in memory of FC Rubin`s fullback Lenar Gilmullin starts in Kazan today.
The tournament will be participated by the team of FC Anji child and youth football Academy made up of the players born in 1999.
Director of FC Anji Academy Omar Magomedov speaks about it in detail:
- It`s rather prestigious tournament which is participated, among others, by the teams of Kazan Football Academy, Chertanovo Academy, FC Krasnodar, FC Rubin, FC Terek. It should be also noted that the team representing football academy of the famous club Barcelona (Spain) will take part in the current tournament.
The competitions will be held from Feb. 5-10 on the artificial pitch of football arena of Central stadium in Kazan. Despite me, the coaches of the Academy Renat Izbulatov, Shamil Abuev and the team doctor Murad Gereev have departed for Kazan. We`ll try to bring good news from Kazan to our football fans, but, anyway, what is the most important is the very participation of the Academy`s young pupils in such tournaments.
