New Delhi : The Brazilians have come here for the development of Indian football and not just to honour their contracts, insisted the legendary Roberto Carlos, who is marquee player of the ISL franchise Delhi Dynamos FC.
Carlos believes that the players still have to develop a lot. “I want the national squad of Indian football team to get the benefit out of it. I believe within one or two years Indian players will witness an evolution like never before.
“Our goal will be to make sure that the players play for win. You’ll see the same with Delhi Dynamos this year.
“There are 18, and including me, 19 players from Brazil who’ll be playing in the Indian Super league. We are here for a reason, and the reason is not limited to our contract. We are here for development of football in India,” said Carlos.
On asking the quadragenarian about how serious is his finger injury and whether he’ll limit his role to coaching alone in the ISL.
The otherwise shy player was quick to reply, and said, “The injury is on my hand and not on feet. I am here to play and will give my best both as a player and a coach.”
The event also witnessed a formal agreement between BRICS Football cup and Nivia sports, who will be the official supplier of the ball.
