We have six foreign players & there is a high possibility that all are capable of playing … I have one question : Is it better lớn reduce one foreign player ? Because the player who comes here has mập be of high unique. It is not possible that a ( foreign ) player with no chất lượng can play in ISL, ” the Spaniard said before ATK Mohun Bagan began their chiến dịch this season .
The ISL is good advertisement for Indian football và every season there have been more Indians on the pitch but if football’s standard has Khủng improve, work should start in the academies, Habas said .
