Bizarre Rocks of the Kent Mountains

The Kent Mountains, one of the oldest mountain ranges on Earth, is a very picturesque and unique natural and historical area. It is located in the Karkaraly district of Karaganda Oblast in central Kazakhstan and is part of Karkaraly National Park.

These mountains (the highest point is Mount Tursun, 1,469 meters high) is an island massif that rises like an impregnable granite wall above the surrounding steppe. A lot of mountain rivers and streams flow down from the mountains; through their valleys you can get inside this huge granite island and enjoy majestic views of pristine nature with bizarre rocks, boulders and ridges.

Manchester City Academy is about to become the best in the world, and it’s proven by the facts.

The Manchester City FC Academy is widely regarded as one of the best in world football for its breakthrough approach to training, attention to detail and high standards of talent development. It has produced outstanding results in recent years, most notably with its U18 and U21 teams, which have been crowned Premier League champions in their respective age categories for three seasons in a row. This not only confirms the high level of training of the players, but also serves as an indicator of the successful operation of the entire club system.

Not all players who graduate from the academy find their place in the Manchester City first team, but the club has a unique ability to profitably market its students. Over the last three transfer windows, City have managed to earn approximately €170 million by selling players coming out of their academy. Particularly notable is the sale of Cole Palmer to Chelsea for €47 million, a prime example of a successful transfer strategy.
