Former ManU Player Djordjic Says Super League Imports Will Boost Indian Football

Former ManU midfelder Bojan Djordjic said that foreign players who join India's Super League "are not just mercenaries chasing one final big payday" but they will help to establish football in the "cricket-mad" country, according to REUTERS. Djordjic "will join marquee names such as former Juventus striker David Trezeguet and former Arsenal winger Fredrik Ljungberg in the first season" of the ISL. Djordjic said, "They (the foreigners) will teach these players how a midfielder, how a defender, how a striker works. Indian players have the talent but they haven't had the structure and organization to work as a team and win games." When he was offered the chance to go to India, Djordjic "jumped at the chance to take part in what he sees as a hugely exciting project." Djordjic: "I'm hoping to bring something else there -- there's one billion people, they love the sport, and I'm hoping we can move football forward in the right direction" (REUTERS, 8/19).
