Dear football lover, My name is Vladimir and I live in Germany. My way of life and my passion is the wonderful game of Football and the Science behind it. I have degrees in both Computer and Sport Science and try to do my best in order to expand and share my football knowledge with others. Being the owner of the UEFA B License I work as an Academy Coach and Opponent Video Analyst. The main area of interest is to connect Football Game with Science in order to improve the quality of modern approaches in Football Coaching and Development. The courses I've created are based exceptionally on scientific sports knowledge and are considered to be concise and engaging. I hope you find them useful and look forward to meeting you inside one or several of your choice. Cordially yours, Vladimir
