ISL will benefit Indian football: Pauleta


 
 NEW DELHI, Sept 24 (PTI): Portuguese footballer Pedro Miguel Pauleta feels tournaments like Indian Super League (ISL), which involves international players, will benefit the current crop of Indian Football players and will also boost the younger generations to take up the sport.

Football as a sport is at the threshold of a huge face-lift in India with the launch of ISL and the country hosting the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2017.

“With the advent of Indian Super League, it will inspire the younger generations to take up the sport and the players will undoubtedly benefit from the international players because of the amount of experience they brings in to play,” Pauleta said at the inauguration of the Paris Saint-Germain Academy.
