The football compare had left to penalties. It was a spin of my ten-year-old son, Louis – if he missed, it was all over. 

The goalkeeper was Andy Johnson, a former England professional.

Louis fluffed his flog and detonate into tears. And yet, after his week of football coaching in Sardinia, he said: ‘Dadda, that was a best holiday we have ever had.’

Like many boys, your son substantially wants to be a Premier League player. Your daughter substantially wants to be a cocktail star, indication or actress.

On my holidays, we only wish a few hours alone with a sun, my mother and a book. The resolution is a Chia Laguna Prodays Football Academy, an hour from Cagliari on a south seashore of Sardinia.

It is Andy Johnson’s brainchild, along with tip children’s manager Sam Hubert. It was stirring for Louis — and flattering stirring for me, too.

Over 5 days of morning and afternoon sessions, Louis got to play with a likes of Brighton striker Bobby Zamora.

Meanwhile, my mother and 13-year-old daughter were frequency going to intent to a best beach we have ever had a pleasure to vegetate upon.

The sauna was rated by them as a many balmy imaginable, too, with a breathtaking perspective of a sea from a forever pool.

The Chia Laguna review is widespread out opposite a hillside, with 3 levels of luxury. The center one, in that we stayed, is a ‘village’ with 240 particular houses, so there is copiousness of privacy.

While a tangible accommodation is 700 yards from a beach, a Noddy sight creates such unchanging journeys to and from a seaside that it doesn’t matter.

But, of course, it was a football training that done it for Louis — and we have to confess, for me.

Far from fasten my womenfolk, we watched any minute.

I write as someone who has sat for infinite hours in a British sleet examination my son being bawled during by FA-trained coaches.

For a uninitiated, let me tell we that a football training programmes in this nation are mind-numbingly unimaginative.

By contrast, Prodays’s Hubert knows his stuff, carrying lerned during Chelsea and Arsenal. He pennyless adult a morning sessions into ‘challenges’, gripping it rival during all times, though also fostering a suggestion of fellowship.

The afternoon event was a tournament. Divided into underneath and over-tens, a boys shaped teams, any with a veteran on their side. My son got to tackle Johnson, who scored twice for Everton opposite Liverpool in his initial Merseyside derby. we had my chance, too, in a Dads and Lads match. we let in 16 goals.

After a morning sessions, we headed for a grill by a beach.

It serves a family accessible Italian food we wish — good fish and pasta, though above all, pizzas that overpower a inspired child.

Being a quadruped of habit, my son refuelled any day with an surprising Americana in that chips were buried amid mozzarella and frankfurters.

The beach is so prosaic that we are still not out of your abyss 200 yards from a shore. It is henceforth ease and, like a Caribbean, so transparent we can see a bottom.

For destiny academies, Prodays hopes to have bigger stars, such as John Terry and Rio Ferdinand. Who knows, should your son surpass he could be on his approach to a Premiership. To counterfeit Bobby Robson, a late England manager, a universe could turn his lobster.
