Barcelona Foundation and Unicef: An exemplary collaboration

In the context of education through sport, social inclusion must be increasingly valued in various sports, like soccer. Should prevail three maximum: teach the sport to everyone and teach the sport to everyone and teach more than sport at all. It is important to have the promotion of public policies that can ever more secure the right to sport for all, especially children and adolescents, as a constitutional guarantee provided for in Art. 5 of the Federal Constitution Federative Republic of Brazil 1988.

All persons are equal before the law. There should be equal opportunities especially to activities related to education and sport. In this context, the role of teacher / coach is essential to carry out sports activities that can develop knowledge, skills and positive attitudes of boys and girls. According to Art. 4 of the Statute of Children and Adolescents (ECA), it is the duty of the state, the family, community, society in general and the government to ensure, with absolute priority, the realization of the rights to life, health, education, sport, leisure, culture, dignity, respect, freedom and family and community life.

At this time, the main impressions, reflections and perspectives on education by sport in Brazil are excellent, especially when considering the valuable lessons University of Soccer, which will always remain in my day to day academic, professional and as a Brazilian citizen. Mostly, realizing that solidarity, love, respect and social inclusion should be ubiquitous in the games and children games and young people, to strengthen the idea of ​​sport as law and established practice of the principles of inclusive education, emphasizing the educational aspects of teaching sports, be they network and field, invasion, fighting and combat, athletics and rhythmic activities, as well present in many schools and Brazilian and international institutions.

Therefore, from the perspective of sport and education in global parameter, the practice sports should be safe and inclusive for children and young people, especially students disabled. A few years ago the Fundació F.C. Barcelona / Spain is receiving highlighting the various activities of inclusion and social responsibility. However, are developed numerous recreational activities for children and young people, especially soccer, basketball and art education through drawings and reading textbooks, in addition to the motivation through the presence of his biggest idols in the sport, such as the Latin American players Neymar Junior (Brazil) and Lionel Messi (Argentina), whose personal and professional trajectories are also inspiring.

The Fundació F.C. Barcelona is great example and should be inspiration to others national and foreign institutions in relation to the theory associated with the practice of collateral inalienable sports education by presenting different approaches and technologic innovative to provide students with a more complete experience of sports focusing not only on results, but in interpersonal relationships, to be training solidarity and conscious citizens in the current global environment.

In the national and international context the importance of education through sport is to consolidate the full human development also through culture, which must be present in lives of thousands of children and youth. Through the game, the game and the sport should be a relevant participation, through socialization and inclusion in society, which allow the physical, motor, cognitive, psychological, emotional, spiritual and social development of children, youth and adult participants of the various practices sports, cultural and leisure that comes to interfere positively in the way they perceive life and the modern world.

All this learning about the sport for education comes to ennoble my fields of multidisciplinary activities (Business, Law and Journalism). Currently, I was approved in Doctor of Law and Social Sciences Program at the National University of Cordoba (UNC / 400 Años de Tradición) and future all the knowledge acquired at the University of Soccer will serve as the maximum reference for the elaboration of my Thesis "Fundació F.C. Barcelona and UNICEF: Human Dignity, Infancia y Juventud ", which is investigating so scientific sports activities and inclusive education present in countries like Brazil, Argentina, China, Ghana and South Africa, from the perspective of human rights and Social Sciences.

In the reality of Latin America and Brazil, where there are increasingly high rates of child labor, many situations involving consumption and drug trafficking, the most various forms of violence and juvenile sexual exploitation, especially in all Regions of Brazil. The basic premise to ensure access to sports as a right and change the lives of thousands of boys and girls, will always be a level playing field in access to education and sports. According to Art. 32 of the Law of Guidelines and Bases of National Education (Law No. 9.394 / 96), you must ensure the basic training of citizens through education key required by developing the ability to learn and understand the natural and social environment, the political system, technology, art and the acquisition of knowledge and skills in shaping attitudes and human values.

Finally, I come to reflect on the meaning of a great example of Fundació F.C. Barcelona through the excellence in all activities the University of Soccer, with determination, study and research on sport and education. At this time I dedicate my sincere thanks to all creators, teachers and students of the University of Soccer, Fundació Barcelona F.C., UNICEF, United Wolfsburg and Western Union Foundation, to strengthen the ideals of sport and education in a human way, caring, committed and true, for the dignity human and integral protection of boys and girls who can make a difference and provide new opportunities for thousands of children and young people in Brazil and in several countries of the world.

Can Riyad Mahrez improve Barcelona's attack?

Riyad Mahrez has been linked to Barcelona for a couple of seasons now. His superb performances for Leicester City, which helped The Foxes conquer the Premier League only last season, made him an attractive addition for major European clubs in need of talent.

Mahrez extended his contract for a further four years with Leicester only last summer, shortly after finishing 7th in the run-up for the Ballon d'Or. While The Foxes have been far less consistent this season, the 26-year-old Algerian international was contributed with four goals and two assists in their Champions League campaign.

Undoubtedly, Mahrez would be a great signing for any club. However, would Barcelona be the best fit for his future? Can he bring what the Catalan giants are currently lacking? Listen to Episode 9 of 'The Barcelona Podcast' to find out:

Why Barcelona should sign Yerry Mina in 2018

Yerry Mina has been heavily linked with Barcelona in recent times. The 22-year-old centre-back, who has excelled for both Palmeiras and Colombia in recent times, is rumoured to be joining Barca in the summer -- the summer of 2018, that is.

Given the huge role Mina is bound to play for Colombia in the biggest international tournament in football, the Barca board believe it is best for the young defender to stay in his current club until then. As per, Los Cafeteros are currently 28/1 favourites to win the World Cup in 2018 and their limited chances of success would only increase if Mina's form and confidence is exceptional when it truly matters.

Barcelona reportedly agreed an option to bring Mina from Palmeiras to the Camp Nou for a €9 million back in October 2016. However, the Barca board believe that the 195cm Colombian should remain in his current club until the end of the 2018 World Cup, to be played in Russian next summer.

Lucas Lima is not the midfielder Barcelona need despite Neymar recommendation

Lucas Lima is close to finalising his transfer to Barcelona in January 2018, according to reports in the Brazilian media. The 26 year-old midfielder, who currently plays for Santos and the Brazilian national team, is rumoured to be joining Barca on a free transfer once his current deal expires on 31st December 2017.

Lima has reportedly received offers from Real Madrid, PSG and Bayern Munich in recent times. However, the gifted Santos playmaker is set to sign a four-year deal with Barcelona as soon as July 1st, exactly six months before his contract with Santos expires.

While I don't doubt that the Brazilian international is a quality player, it seems obvious that the fact that his agent is in fact Neymar's dad has helped his potential move to Barcelona. Having dated Neymar's sister and his close friendship with Barca's No.11 would not have done much harm to his chances of securing a move either.

If rumours were to become a reality and Lima joined the Catalan giants du…

Dani Alves to Manchester City: Another example of terrible business by Barcelona

Dani Alves has been linked with a move to Manchester City and is expected to join the Sky Blues in the coming days. Astute as ever, former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola has not wasted a second to approach his former star in order to strengthen his squad this summer.

Dani Alves was allowed to leave Barcelona on a free transfer only last season. Considering his continued excellent performances for Juventus, it is obvious why Guardiola is prepared to pay a fee of €5.7 million to reunite with the veteran Brazilian full-back.

Alves' departure can only be considered as terrible business for Barcelona -- and this is certainly not the first time.

It really is baffling that, while Alves is being offered a further two years to move to the English Premier League, Barcelona are still struggling to find a worthy replacement: With stories linking the Blaugranas to Hector Bellerin or Nelson Semedo splashed all over the Catalan media on a daily basis.

We discussed why Bellerin should be the Bl…

Barcelona future star Eric Garcia snatched by Manchester City

Eric Garcia, one of the most promising youngsters in Barcelona's La Masia academy, has surprised his coaches by announcing his decision to not renew his current contract.

Garcia is, undoubtedly, one of the most promising defenders in Barca's youth system. The 16-year-old center-back, who is already a Spain U-17 international, has continuously been compared to Gerard Pique during his career at the club -- which started at the tender age of just six years old.

Manchester City are reportedly offering the player €1million over the next three years and, unsurprisingly, are therefore the favourites to land Garcia on a free transfer -- given the fact that Garcia does not have a formal contract with Barcelona given his age.

Cesc Fabregas or Hector Bellerin are only a couple of the players that Barca has lost in this controversial manner over the years. This is unacceptable. La Masia has to be the basis for Barcelona's future, as we discussed in much more depth in Episode 7 of …
