Habas requests ATK bosses not to accept proposal of new rule in ISL 

The Spanish coach of Athletico De Kolkata (ATK), Antonio Lopez Habas has refused to accept the proposal of new rule, being tried to implement by the organizer of Indian Super League in its coming edition, starting from October 3.

IMGR, the organizer of the ISL has sent proposal letters to all its eight franchise club teams recently to know their opinion on the new rule for a match in the tournament in the second edition. The new rule has reportedly said that there will not be any draw match in the tournament. Even if a match ends with a draw then it will be decided finally through the penalty shoot-out. And in that case, the winning team will be awarded two points (one point for draw+ one point from winning the match through penalty shoot-out) instead of three points. According to a top IMGR executive, the reason behind trying to implement this new rule is to make the championship more attractive where the spectators will be watching more goals and decisive matches in the championship. It has been also learnt that Antonio Habas already requested the team’s top brass not to agree with the proposal of a new rule.

But it has been learnt that out of the eight franchise teams, four has disagreed with the new rule proposal while three franchise teams has accepted it.

Meanwhile, ATK has been doing high-altitude training on the bed of mountains in a place, named Segovia. It is located around 80 kilometers from Madrid. During their month-long pre-season training, the team is scheduled to take part in a couple of preparatory matches, mainly with the local under-19 teams as well as with a La Liga second division team.
