Cornel Glen, the striker from Trinidad & Tobago who has represented his country in the 2006 World Cup, blasted the Indian Super League (ISL) after his opening session of training in Kolkata with Mohun Bagan on Monday morning.

Glen was highly critical of the ISL as he said, “ISL will gradually destroy the football in India. The key loss due to this franchise league, Indian football is facing is that the footballers who are participating in ISL is not being able to deliver their best in the country’s premier football league, I-league due to lack of proper rest.

“At the same time, senior national team’s performance in the international arena is also getting hampered due to this franchise league as the chief national coach was not able to make the required preparation of the senior national team for its international engagements,” Glenn said.

 

Mohun Bagan started training for the season with around 15 footballers including Glen on Monday morning and commenting on the team’s strength this season, Mohun Bagan coach Sanjoy Sen said, “I do not know whether the club will be able to rope in Sony Norde finally.

It is true that in the last season, Norde had a major role in our I-League triumph. But at the time it was also a fact that Norde did not score in team’s each and every match. There were also other footballers who contributed a lot in achieving the League. So, I will have to move with the set of footballers I have this season.”
