Paradou AC/JMG "El Ankaoui" Academy[edit]

In 2007, Paradou AC launched their academy in a partnership with JMG Academy, run by Frenchman Jean-Marc Guillou.[1] The cost of the academy is estimated to be about €600,000 over 7 years, including the purchase of land at a site in Tessala El Merdja (in the outskirts of Alger), and construction of housing and facilities for the players and staff. Since its creation, the academy has had a tremendous amount of success. The current team is made up of players aged 13 to 15 years old, and they have regularly beaten much older teams, while playing without shoes or a goalie.[2] The team is coached by Olivier Guillou and Djamel Aïch.[3][4]
