Local trainer gets international license


Transition Football coach Claudio Lorenzani is looking to energize the local football community after recently winning his UEFA B license from the Scottish Football Association.

Lorenzani persevered for over a year, training both online and in person in Scotland to qualify.

“It was a very long and rigorous process that involved a lot of balancing between doing coaching and trying to survive in a pandemic with all the restrictions,” he said.

He added that getting the license was not only a big step for him, but an overall win for the local football community as a whole.

“I think we are starving for coaching education in South Africa and having this [licence], it’s not only great for our players [at Transition Football] but for other players in the region as I seek to support other coaches through seminars.

Lorenzani has been in the coaching profession for nearly 11 years after making the transition from being a player.

“As a coach I can see how many lives we can change, both players and coaches, and that’s fantastic.”

Lorenzani is looking forward to returning to the field with his Transition Football players for an undoubtedly exciting year.
