The Dutchman who has worked with the likes of Frank Rijkaard, Louis Van Gaal and the Argentine FA will once again grace the nation...
World renowned football fitness coach Raymond Verheijen will visit India later this month to conduct a fitness workshop for the top 50 football coaches from across the nation and the sub-continent in Mumbai.
 
It is poised to be a second visit for the former FC Barcelona consultant as he had visited the country back in 2013. The All Indian Football Federation (AIFF) had called for his services four years ago when he conducted a similar workshop only for I-League coaches in New Delhi.

Unlike the last time, the workshop which will be held in three week's time will be open for all the top football coaches in South Asia.

Verheijen studied Exercise Physiology and Sports Psychology at the Vrije University, Amsterdam. He completed his Masters Degrees in 1995. He also studied at the Liverpool John Moores University in 1993-1995.

In 1998 Dutch National Team manager Frank Rijkaard appointed Verheijen as one of his assistants in preparation for the EURO 2000 in which Holland reached the semi final. Most recently, he was also a part of the conditioning team of the Argentina squad, which reached the finals of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, led by Lionel Messi.
 
The event is being organised by Ultra Sports India, one of the upcoming sports management companies in the city.

The details of the event are as follows:

Date: 22nd – 24th September 2017

Venue: American School of Bombay, Mumbai.

Participants: 50 top football coaches from across India and Sub Continent.
