Players Meet Portuguese International Goncalo Guedes in Lisbon
July 29th, 2019, Lisbon, Portugal; GPS Portugal and their partner in Lousa, CD Lousanense, had the chance to hold a meet and greet with Valencia CF players in Lisbon ahead of their pre-season friendly with Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon.
Valencia’s Portuguese star Goncalo Guedes took center stage at the event, taking the time to meet all of the GPS Portugal players as well as staff. Valencia went on to win the match 2-1 with goals from Kondogbia and Gameiro.
This event builds off of Valencia CF’s technical visit to GPS Portugal and their inaugural partner, CD Lousanense, in early July from the 5th to the 7th.
The extremely talented Valencia CF Academy Head Coach Jose Antonio Camacho led a 3-day professional development event for a group of CD Lousanense coaches and players alongside GPS Portugal GM and UEFA Pro Licensed Coach, Francisco Baptista.
CD Lousanense’s new partnership with GPS Portugal will give them access to the Valencia CF methodology, technical support for their coaches and players, as well as the possibility for players to attend Valencia CF Elite Camps.
