“Successful people don’t decide their future, they decide their habits and their habits decide their future”

This ethos is reflected by his team captain and the captain of the England National Futsal team, Raoni Medina who recently finished a Sports Directors Course at the Royal Spanish Football Federation (Real Federación Española de Fútbol).

Raoni shared his thoughts on this experience in Spain:

“Sports Director course by RFEF concluded and what a fantastic journey it was, for the last six months Madrid was my second home, traveling every week was tiring but really enjoyable at the same time. Not only learning from the best Spanish professionals but sharing all this time with a nice bunch of people. Looking forward to the next chapter, but before it’s time to rest and be ready for an exciting season ahead.”

Futsal Focus spoke with Raoni after he finished to find out what his motivation was to take the course,

“I have always had an interest in leadership and this has been fuelled further by my roles in Futsal on and off the court. However, my playing career will come to an end one day and I see this course as a means to continue my leadership development in the next chapter of my life,” said Raoni.

Raoni is one of the most successful domestic futsal players in England, winning 8 National Titles, 7 FA Futsal Cups, 4 Golden Boots with London Helevicia Futsal Club, Baku United and Reading Futsal Club.
