How one of the world’s top teams trains the best soccer brains
They’ve produced some of the biggest names in the game: In 2010 all three finalists for FIFA’s Golden Ball Award—Messi, Iniesta and Xavi—were graduates of FC Barcelona’s legendary academy. In 2011 Messi kept the crown, Xavi came in third, and “Barça” won the Champions League with seven players from its own youth teams. Late last year, longtime SIS writer Klaus Pabst got to visit the Catalan club’s training facilities and study the foundations of its incredible success.
