ISL Final: 5 things new Indian Football team coach can learn from BFC's title triumph
#2 Setting Up a Core
Inconsistency has been a hated companion of many Indian clubs. Both in ISL and I-League we have seen numerous clubs falling from top to bottom, at the lapse of a few months. The latest example of this remains Chennaiyin FC.
However, Bengaluru FC stands out here with 6 trophies in their 6 seasons. The quality of management highlighted here is setting up the core of the club.
For a team like India, having a core to revolve their matches around is crucial. The players develop combinations over time which need to be carried on for a few years. The nucleus of successful clubs is seen to be the same for seasons. Even the coaching staffs are not altered all of a sudden. At Bengaluru FC, the management took a bold decision in choosing Carles Cuadrat (without any prior experience as a senior coach) as Albert Roca’s successor. But the same ensured that the club objectives remained the same which ultimately became a success.
Like Sunil Chhetri and Udanta Singh who have been with the Blues for some time now, the Indian national team too requires consistent players in its outfit.
