No one can deny the high-ranking level that African football has reached in the last two decades. African players practicing in Europe, as well as inside the African continent, have shown great physical, technical, and tactical abilities. This noticeable progress is partially due to the important role that football academies and centers play in the training of today’s African football talents.
In Africa, several training centers and academies are set up each year; even famous clubs from around the world come to the continent to launch their schools and look for new talents. Current training centers in Africa have no reasons to envy those of the Europeans. This is thanks to Jean-Marc Guillou, in particular, who has established this fashion in Africa. Guillou has trained many talents like Gervinho and Salomon Kalou.
