Saviour Darmanin in Bisham Abbey and Birmingham

Goalkeepers’ coach Saviour Darmanin is currently in the UK where he is taking the opportunity to gain further experience in coaching.

Darmanin visited the Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre where the Football Association’s Goalkeepers Coaches Martin Thomas and Billy Stewart were giving a trial to eleven young goalkeepers for selection with the England Youths team.

The former Malta national goalkeeper then visited Premier League side Birmingham City where he met manager Alex McLeish and the club’s three goalkeepers namely Colin Doyle, Maik Taylor and Ben Foster who has just joined the club from Manchester United.

In a short comment, Darmanin told that the experience so far has been a most positive one since he “is living football.”
