Players managed by the elite managers in picture will be in action this ISL

Since the inception of the Indian Super League, foreign players have been the focal point in the tournament being highly successful. These elite foreign stars, though most of them being in the final years of their careers, attract the fans which in turn helps the league to be more popular. 

These players come to India after stellar showings in some of the biggest leagues in the world. As discussed earlier, the current crop of foreign signings in the ISL have played with the best players in the world, some of them being former Ballon d'Or winners. In this list, we will track down the ISL signings for the upcoming season who have played under some of the best managers in the business: 

#6 Paul Rachubka - Alex Ferguson

The American goalkeeper has signed for Kerala Blasters recently and will be seen in the famous yellow of Kerala soon. Rachubka, a product of the Manchester United academy, was in the United's first team squad for three years between 2000-2002.

Though he made just one official appearance for the Red Devils, the goalkeeper got a chance to be managed by none other than Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford. Ferguson is considered to be one of the greatest managers of all time and the 36-year-old Blasters custodian had a chance to learn all his tricks under the Glaswegian's management.
