He has been both a head coach and a fitness coach since 2012, and has worked in prestigious football clubs such as UE Cornellà, AEC Manlleu or even Ripollet.

Fortuny has already led some B1 Players training sessions along with the other coaches, Didi Rodriguez and Eric Bertran, focusing on player conditioning and physical performance. He’s already working hard.

A true talent in every aspect of the game. His charismatic character shall surely boost B1 Soccer Academy’s overall quality.

Marc’s arrival sadly coincides with the departure of our coach Victor González, having decided to seek new adventures in Asia as he establishes a new Project.

Victor has been with us throughout 14 months, running training sessions, analyzing our players’ performances in matches with their respective teams, and enjoying football at its fullest. In addition, he was the head coach of our U16 team in the 2019 MIC tournament this past April.

At B1 Soccer Academy we pride ourselves on having the greatest professionals, and it is a true pleasure to be able to work with such experienced, well-prepared, and knowledgeable coaches in Youth Development.

Our greatest focus is always towards providing all the tools necessary to ensure our players’ development.

It has been an incredible experience working with you Victor, and we wish you all the best in your new adventure.
