Inter Milan are set to open a new Academy in Nanjing, with start-up operations rapidly gathering pace in the province of Jiangsu.
Two Inter Academy coaches, Luigi Mainolfi and Simone De Luca, will arrive in China at the end of March to begin work with the ten schools and 20 trainers, which were selected for the project following a careful assessment process.
Aldo Montinaro, the Technical Operations Manager of the Inter Academy, has recently travelled to Nanjing from Shanghai, where an Inter Academy was set up with Yitao F.C. last year. He will assist in finalising details for the inauguration of the new Academy.
Meanwhile, Inter Academy Jiangsu president Mr. Pan is in Italy for a series of institutional meetings and to coordinate the presentation of the project's programme, to be held in Nanjing. This will be attended by F.C. Internazionale Director of Global Youth Business Barbara Biggi and Academy Technical Director Marco Monti.
Back in China, members of the Nanjing government are to visit Shanghai over the coming days to see at first hand the Inter Academy project with Yitao F.C.
Besides Aldo Montinaro, the Inter Academy Business Development Manager Luca Franchini will also be present to assess the many partnership requests Inter Academy has received from the East.
