Carles Puyol, a luxury visitor at the 2nd Pep Summer Camp


Aside from the logical presence of Pep Guardiola at the summer football camp that he organizes in Rialp, in Lleida, the boys and girls who participated also enjoyed one of the best defenders in the history of football: Carles Puyol, winner of 6 Leagues and 3 Champions with FC Barcelona and 1 World Cup and 1 European Championship with the Spanish National Team.

The former football player from La Pobla de Segur, a town near Rialp, took a picture with all the participants and trained with them, sharing rondos and ball conservation workouts, exercising defense in 1-on-1 actions and showing that he could also have been a great goalkeeper.

During the two weeks of the Campus, two very interesting talks also took place at the Hotel Condes del Pallars: Jaume Vilella, general manager of Barça in a wheelchair, and the players Fernando Valderrama and Rafa Benítez, as a result of the collaboration between the Escola Afa and the Guardiola Sala Foundation; and, Eduardo Torras, president of Sports2live, who is also helped by the Foundation, and Youssef, a young Moroccan who shared his story of personal growth since he arrived in Spain from Morocco.
