It’s time to build on the momentum, says Shabbir


Hyderabad FC clinching the Hero ISL trophy in Goa on Sunday has given the Hyderabad soccer followers one thing to cheer for, lastly.

But, critics didn’t miss the undeniable fact that the profitable crew doesn’t have even one participant from the metropolis.

It’s no fault of the franchisee although, however it may very well be a mirrored image of the low the sport has hit over the final three many years.

Support wanted

“Yes, after five decades a team from Hyderabad won a national championship. It is time to build on this momentum as the young talent will look to the authorities concerned for the right kind of support,” stated former India captain and Telangana State soccer coach Shabbir Ali.

Need to scout for expertise

“We cannot blame any individual for this. But, again, the clubs and the Telangana Football Association have to make conscious efforts to scout for talent like how Sreenidhi FC is doing and ensure talented players get a platform to showcase their skills. TFFA and clubs cannot give jobs,” stated TFA secretary G. Palguna. “Hence, the onus is on the corporates and the State government to at least ensure job security for the young performing footballers,” he stated.

Ready to assist

Former India skipper Victor Amalraj stated the former internationals had been at all times prepared to assist any transfer to promote the sport. “And, the HFC win is a perfect reminder that we have to look far ahead,” he stated.

For his half, Palguna felt the HFC triumph was an enormous morale-booster and TFA was doing its greatest to hold the sport alive.

“We are organising leagues and also women’s tournaments. But we are struggling to get even Gymkhana ground to host them.

“But, again, for instance, G. Sowmya of Nizamabad, who is now a senior India player, was promised ₹5 lakh incentive by the State government seven years ago, but is yet to get it.

“The message has to be loud and clear that at least deserving footballers get their due,” he stated.

“The top officials should take the initiative to do something to capitalise on the huge success story of HFC,” he concluded.
