Indian international Gouramangi Moirangthem Singh and East Bengal legend Alvito D’Cunha have completed Step 1 of their Level 2 Coaching License held at the Middlesbrough Academy in Darlington, England.
The coaching course is conducted by England’s Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA). The course is specially meant for professional footballers, who would like to obtain a coaching license with a special focus on their future career after their playing years.
The Football Players Association of India (FPAI) has tied up with the English PFA to provide its courses for Indian professional players. Mangi and Alvito are the first Indian players to make use of this new tie-up and they will hopefully pave the way for many other Indian footballers to get a coaching license.
Mangi and Alvito will return to England in a few months for the assessment to complete their Level 2 Coaching License.
