TIRANA, Feb. 19 (Xinhua) -- UEFA President Michel Platini arrived in Tirana on Wednesday to give the green light to new Albanian government program on football as a separate subject in schools all around the country, according to ATA.

The program was presented over the past few months to integrate football into Albanian education system and Platini has shown exclusive interest in pushing ahead with the initiative. [ After being informed over the Albanian government initiative, Platini decided to visit Tirana to affirm the UEFA support in this field.

The idea has been developing for a long time and has already received the support of UEFA and FIFA, while a pilot project, jointly funded by UEFA and the Albanian Football Federation, is likely to be kicked off next year.
