Benchmark and global leader within its field
AJM seeks to be a benchmark and global leader in the training of soccer players, based on their methodology, ForMas, forged in values and developed by their team of experts led by Javier Mascherano.
The paradigm of the footballer who receives information and seeks to complete it by his own means, without waiting to be trained, makes him an incomplete footballer.
On the other hand, the capacities of the trainer are essential for the athlete to assimilate values such as seriousness on a day-to-day basis, improvement of their virtues and correction of their defects, desire for “everyone” and not for “one”, more no matter how successful you are in your career.
In this sense, Javier Mascherano represents the values desired by any trainer in charge of a group of young athletes.
