Sardar Azmoun and Christian Noboa tok a training session at the Gazprom Academy
Azmoun and Noboa spent time with players born in 2011 and each managed a team in a match. After training, the Iranian striker and the Ecuadorian midfielder signed autographs and had photos with the kids.

Sardar Azmoun told us: “I always knew that the Zenith Academy is one of the best in Russia, the young lads played very well. I wanted the lesson to be as fun as possible and we had a few jokes and messed around. But the kids were very good!" 

Christian Noboa went further: “Today was a good experience for me, but I don’t know yet whether I will be a children's trainer in the future. The level of these guys at the Gazprom Academy is really good. There are great conditions for playing football, excellent pitches and qualified coaches."
