This is an individual who has won two MLS Cups as a player and coached at a professional level. David has now established a world-class academy in Bradenton. David Vaudreuil's commitment to the UPSL is just another feather in the UPSL's cap as the league continues to attract sophisticated ownership groups, investors and coaches from around the world who have significant backgrounds in the game and want to utilize the UPSL for its player development platform. We welcome David and PSE Conquistadores with open arms and look forward to a long-term relationship."

"PSE Conquistadores have committed to a three-year plan to build an international level professional club and academy in Southwest Florida. In building a world-class organization, there will be a player development pathway that includes a youth academy, and international residency academy, a UPSL team and a future professional team with a stadium. The eventual stadium complex envisions training facilities and commercial real estate development on site," Vaudreuil said.

Diego Morata is Associate Head Coach of PSE Conquistadores. A former professional footballer in Spain and coach at RCD Espanyol (La Liga) and the Catalan U-14 Women's National Team, Morata is Director of Coaching at PSE Soccer/World Sport Academy Bradenton.

"Our technical staff includes Diego Morata, a UEFA Pro licensed coach and trainer, and we intend to add the highest level of experienced coaches that believe in our style of play and development methodology."

The PSE technical staff has coached and trained world-class players like Barcelona winger Jordi Alba, former Major League Soccer MVP Alex Pineda Chacon, Real Betis forward Juan Pablo Caffa and Inter Milan winger Keita Balde as well as numerous other international players from the United States and Spain.
