New Delhi: The Football World Cup is around the corner. The entire world is eagerly waiting for the FIFA World Cup to kick off in November. All roads lead to Qatar for the biggest sporting festival on the planet, the FIFA World Cup.
Indian football has made some administrative changes amidst raising the level of football in the country.
The All India Football Federation (AIFF) Executive Committee unanimously approved president Kalyan Chaubey’s proposal to appoint Dr. Shaji Prabhakaran as the body’s new secretary general. The AIFF’s newly created executive committee, which is led by president Kalyan Chaubey, made the selection, which went according to plan.
The choice was made at the Football House during the first executive committee meeting of the new regime, which was presided over by Chaubey. The president proposed Prabhakaran’s name to be the new secretary general of the AIFF, and all of the members unanimously agreed, according to a statement from the AIFF.
The leading member of the group, led by Prabhakaran, who always wanted to bring some changes in the functioning of the AIFF, did not contest the apex body’s elections on Friday, when Chaubey became the federation’s first player president in its 85-year existence.
The AIFF president said: “This is the first time that six former eminent players are part of the Committee as per the order of the Honourable Supreme Court.”
We need to work together, and there should not be any personal ego that comes as a roadblock in our aim to raise the level of Indian football. Discipline plays a key role in the success of any segment, and we need to be accountable as per the deadlines set.
