Professional Coaching History
Chancy’s coaching career started in January 2010 when he became the Head Coach of MFA Taiwan/Shenzen (Taipei City). MFA is a football academy that worked with talent from various age groups and developed them to become top-class talents in Asia. His first task was creating a new innovative coaching curriculum and delivering sessions to different age groups. At the same time, marketing/promoting the academy and employing new coaches while training and educating them. Chancy remained at MFA Taiwan/Shenzen until November 2013, where he sought to find a new challenge that would help him learn, develop and grow as a football coach.
In January 2014, an opportunity to work at one of the most prestigious and well-known football academies in Hong Kong, Asia Pacific Soccer, opened. Initially hired as a senior coach, he was quickly promoted to Head Coach of the academy. Chancy fulfilled similar roles to his previous job. He created and managed training programs at the academy while developing their coaching staff, improving standards both on and off the pitch.
In addition to this, his new roles included:
– Leading the U-11 and U-18 through training and matches (local and abroad),
– Attending games as a scout and finding talented players.
He prepared tours against top European teams, such as Dortmund, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, and Barcelona. An incredible learning experience.
In 2017, he decided to implement his entrepreneurial skills and create XIBOBO Football Development.
