1-month B1 Stages

John Polydor was the first player to join the B1 Stages program, a program which allows a player to stay but for a shorter amount of time, unlike the other players. John quickly was integrated from the beginning and has matched extremely well with the elders of the academy.

“So far I’m enjoying it, all the guys are really nice and the trainers seem to be very competent and know what to do and what they want to see out of us. I feel like I can learn a lot from this experience and develop as a footballer.”

John’s passion for football is undeniable and “his involvement and improvement have been great these days. He arrived for a month, but his sporting evolution, progression, and improvement have been so great that he has decided to follow another month with us in Barcelona” commented on our General Manager, Didi Rodriguez.

This is always good news, John and welcome to the B1 Family!
