Under a new academy structure, Di Tullio will have the aim to prepare young players for the high competition. How this will work these days? The under-23 team will play friendly matches for the time being due to travel and other restrictions due to the pandemic. Montreal also announced a link-man between the first team and U23 squad: Patrice Bernier.

Di Tullio will be assisted by Esteban Landazabal. The coach explained in a few words the hole work: "“My job every single day with my staff will be to give them the tools necessary to sign a (pro) contract and have a long career".

"There’s no specific league or structure that were announcing today as far as competition,” he added. “We’re going against older teams right now, semi-pro teams that play in the provincial semi-pro circuit or, when they’re allowed to play, university teams”, he concluded.
