EPL gurus to train Indian football coaches
Four coaches from the English Premier League (EPL) will train 80 young football coaches in India over a period of three years under the Premier Skills project.
The project is being taken up by the English Premier League in partnership with the British Council, Indian Football Association and the Sports Authority of India.
Forty coaches will be trained in Delhi and the remaining in Kolkata.
Premier Skills will provide an opportunity for young coaches to hone their skills through the training provided by world class professionals thereby enabling them to coach better.
The premier skills project was piloted in Egypt earlier this year.
