Founder & Head Coach
Roberto has played football in youth leagues for years in Spain, but the pro game did not work out for him. However, it opened a door to coaching at a very young age. After years coaching in Spain, he moved to California, USA, to coach children and young people.
This experience changed his mindset completely, and decided to move to London, UK, and quickly continue his coaching career.
He has trained different clubs and schools in London, and after months of coaching for different clubs, he realized the urgent need to create a quality football school, open for everyone.
At the end of 2018, The Spanish Way FC is born. Thereafter, he has coached for more football clubs, being further significant clubs Fulham FC or Real Madrid CF.
Roberto is qualified sports coach, also qualified by the RFEF and the FA.
U8s Football Coach
Mattia is a qualified and double graduated coach, who has coached children and young people abroad, such as in Spain, Argentina or Italy, where he is from.
He also plays football almost everyday to, as he says, further my skills and knowledge of the game for the participants I coach.
This is Mattia’s third season at The Spanish Way, as a senior football coach. As he says, I want to fulfill my desire to pass down what I have learned these years in The Spanish Way FC to the next generation of footballers, not only just as participants, more importantly as individuals.
U4s & U5s Football Coach
Irene started coaching in Italy when she was 15, by chance. “My football team needed a coach and I thought why not, but then it quickly became a passion”. She started with children, then progressed into teenagers changing different clubs.
In the last year, she started coaching toddlers and preschoolers with The Spanish Way FC and she is charge of our Spanish Club for toddlers at The Fulham Boys School.
Irene is also a rugby qualified coach with several years of experience!

Jordi is a young coach that has started his career with us in The Spanish Way last season and from the 23/24 season, he is in charge of our U6s.
Jordi is eager to keep on learning new things everyday which has allowed him to develop his knowledge very quickly.
His dream is to keep on growing as a coach and more importantly as a person so that one day he can call himself a football manager. Bienvenido, Jordi!
