Hunt for Indian Football Team Coach: Celebrity Manager or Domestic Veteran (420 Grams)

Former internationals Ishfaq Ahmed and Renedy Singh sit with Newsclick's 420 Grams team to discuss the hot candidates for the next Indian football team coach

In this episode of 420 Grams, the team discusses the candidates for the next Indian football team coach. All India Football Federation's (AIFF's) search is on and the names doing the round include Sven Goran Eriksson (who has coached big sides such as England), former Bengaluru FC coach Albert Roca, Antonio Habas (who has coached Atletico de Kolkata and Pune City FC) and India U-23 coach Derrick Pereira. Former India internationals Renedy Singh and Ishfaq Ahmed deliberate on the candidates and also discuss whether whether it is better to get someone who knows Indian football to take the job considering how off-field the job actually is. The duo, who are starting their own coaching journeys, also talk about the quality of Indian managers and on the importance of grooming coaching talent from within the football ecosystem in the country.
