Steve Embleton is a head global coach of Leyton Orient Football Club, UK, on his India tour, he interacted with the students and guided them about some basic tips of football. He added, “The training should start from an early age and you should work on basic techniques.” Steve talked about some Indian football flaws, “The coaches need to be trained and should have good knowledge about the game. They should work on the player as a whole and teach them some techniques. India does not have good coaches and I think players do not get enough chance.”
Charanjit Singh Gill, Director of Elite Football Clinic, added to this, “We have very good players and there is no shortage of talent. But, the problem lies in the infrastructure, coaching and the equipments. Everything is available but for some reasons we are not getting it on the fields. This collaboration with Leyton Orient Football Club will help us to bring the expertise on the ground for us. Our mission is to give all the talented young players an opportunity to play with all benefits that they should get.”
