Because of this, several players from India have been lured to Italy. Although none of them played at the highest level, they all learned something from the experience.

“Players like Ashiq Vithayathil, who still plays in Europe, have learned a lot from the time in Italy, no matter what level they played. That comes from immersing myself in a country that has an impressive football heritage.”

These players may not have reached great heights in the football world, but their game was enhanced by their time in Italy.
