Zico is inspiring and ISL gives hope: Armando
Sharing his thoughts on the Brazilian great, Colaco, who presently coaches East Bengal, said, ‘One can see a lot of eagerness and excitement in the way Zico trains and monitors the practice sessions.

He does not put pressure on anybody, he makes the training sessions enjoyable. He has been all over the world and is now here to train FC Goa, so there is eagerness in the players in wanting to learn from him. Even I have learned many things only by watching him.’ FC Goa is one of the eight teams competing in the ISL.

The team had signed exciting players such as Arsenal stars Robert Pires and Andre Santos and I-league winner Ranti Martins. ‘When foreign players come and play with our local players, there is a tendency for improvement. We have to be patient and hope that everything works out well. I’m sure that there will be positive changes in football in near future,’ he said.

Colaco, who is on holiday in Goa, is highly optimistic about the ISL initiative. ‘ISL may prove to be that stepping stone for football to go ahead. In order to reach somewhere, you need to start somewhere. I am sure that there will be positive changes,’ he said.

About East Bengal, Colaco said it is good and with a couple of new foreigners signing, the club has a good chance to win the I-League title.
