He is a 19-year-old Sikh Izhan Nazril, a Malaysian goalkeeper. He secured a very valuable chance to undergo training in Spain with the LaLiga Club in Fuenla Academy.
New Experience, New Environment
Training in Spain is not all about rainbows and sunshine. Other than having to adapt to the weather differences, there are also other things he had to endure and adapt to.
The playing manner is one of many other things.
“In Spain, football is played in higher levels and the intensity is also high,” he said
Spain is a new thing for him. He had to learn and adapt to a completely new local culture there.
Made Good Friends During His Training
However, he is glad that the friends he made during his training treated him well. While with them, he feels at home as they reminded him of his friends back at home.
Training Center With Modern Facilities
Different from what he is used to in Malaysia, the training center in Spain has access to more modern facilities.
He also mentioned that he is in love with the Spain stadium, which made him excited to stay there longer, to learn and understand more about the local culture there.
So far, things are going great for him.
“The end of the transfer window is coming, so it means I might just stand the chance to play here,” he added.
‘Transfer window’ is a football term that means the period during the year in which a football club can transfer players from other playing staff into their playing staff.
He is confident and assured he will be doing his best for Malaysia. Other than to achieve his own dream to play in Spain, he is also doing his best for his family.
