I was a Sales Professional when I first stumbled upon the John Viola Academy and their Football Agent training suite.
Due to my passion for football, I jumped on the chance to be taken under their wing and quickly built a knowledge base around the essential skills needed to succeed in the business through their educational services, alongside their continued mentoring and support.
Since then, I collaborated with fellow JVA student Zviadi Didberidze to take Georgian International Levan Kharbadze form Dinamo Tbilisi to Pafos FC, and continue to complete transfers across European Football…HEAR FROM OUR STUDENTS
