AIFF director says ISL will answer its critics

With critics terming the Indian Super League (ISL) as any other big-budgeted sporting event bearing no impact on national football, the All India Football Federation (AIFF) director Col Gautam Kar on Tuesday said that the competition itself will answer back in due course of time.

‘We always do things with a positive frame of mind. With commerce, entertainment and sport clubbed together, ISL is a complete package. Our aim is to get the public back in the stadiums. And things will certainly improve in due course of time,’ said Col Kar at the launch of the ‘Fair Play Award’ trophy at a city club, here.

Defending the league’s policy to bank on foreign players, like Alessandro Del Piero, Marco Materazzi, Luis Garcia to name a few, for popularity and promotion, Col Kar said the Indian players will not only benefit but also improve their standard by rubbing shoulders with the best in the business.
