The Indian Super League (ISL) is all set to host a first-of-its-kind Coaches’ Forum, which will take place in Mumbai on Monday, January 13, 2020.
The initiative, which is in line with the ISL’s vision, is being organised to discuss the league’s progression and the overall development of the game.
The meeting will be attended by the nine current head coaches from the 10 ISL clubs. This will be the first time all head coaches will have the opportunity to share their opinion on technical matters in a common forum. Jamshedpur FC’s Antonio Iriondo, ATK FC’s Antonio Lopez Habas, Bengaluru FC’s Carles Cuadrat, Kerala Blasters FC’s Eelco Schattorie, Odisha FC’s Josep Gombau, Mumbai City FC’s Jorge Costa, Chennaiyin FC’s Owen Coyle, NorthEast United FC’s Robert Jarni and FC Goa’s Sergio Lobera will be present in Mumbai.
Hyderabad FC will go unrepresented as they parted ways with their head coach Phil Brown on Saturday, January 11.
The coaches will use the forum to discuss what is going right or wrong in the ISL and Indian football with a special focus on refereeing.
Former Welsh international footballer and Fulham FC manager Kit Symons will also attend the forum as a guest advisor to share his insights.
