Speaking in the sidelines of his meeting with Kuakin, General Manager of Real Madrid Football Academies Foundation, Royanian said that "We have guests here today from the Real Madrid Foundation which includes the Real Madrid Academy Affairs, the Camp, and Foreign Affairs Relations.”
Royanian said that a protocol has been signed with Real Madrid with three articles. "First is the launching of common football academies between Persepolis and Real Madrid. The second one is sending prospective players to Real Madrid. And the third article is about other cooperations such as dispatching coaches to the other side.”
Answering a question on when the programs discussed would be operational, Royanian asserted "From the very next day we must consider operation.”
"I hope that we launch the football academy. With the academy we would be able to discover talents across the country and base our adult team on them. We could even transfer and deal in players,” said Royanian.
Answering a question if his team would be able to beat Real Madrid, Roaynian said "If we play as we did against Sepahan we are sure to win.”
