In person were present Fernando Salazar, general manager of Alianza Lima, Nelson Reyes, manager of minors, Jaime Duarte, head of recruitment of minors of the club and Cristian Benavente , on behalf of all the footballers of the institution.
The initial challenge for the team will be the first Futsal Down classic against Universitario, scheduled for this Saturday at Sports Center 1 of the Villa Deportiva Nacional (Videna). After testing last week, the Victorian team began training on Tuesday.
“It is a very important step in the institution in the sense of the inclusion of these boys who love soccer”, said Benavente after participating in the act.
“If we can do our bit for them to enjoy, welcome. Coming to share with them, on behalf of my colleagues, has been a very nice experience. Do not doubt that we will always be with you, “he added.
“As a club we are interested in promoting the integration and inclusion of people in society. We are very excited to see the enthusiasm of the boys to represent the blue and white. We are sure that they will do it in the best way and with great joy”, indicated the Blue and White manager.
