Former Premier League manager John Gregory believes that Indian football will be more in sync with European football from the 2022-23 season.According to the Indian Super League-winning coach who helped Chennaiyin FC to win the championship in 2018, the extension of the domestic calendar to nine months will benefit coaches and players, as well as club administrators and fans.A nine-month schedule for coaches, players, and club administrators is a much better idea.To be involved in a long-term initiative will be hugely exciting.It will allow you some time to recover from each game, and with that will come improved results from your players and, as well as more time for coaches to implement their ideas and ideas on the training pitches, said Gregory.Since joining Chennaiyin in 2017, Gregory played two and a half seasons with the club.The Englishman praised the country's success in the sport over the years.The season will shift into a more consistent shape with the one that Europe is experiencing. Since 2017, I have seen it grow and evolve.The game has captivated the imagination of the masses incredibly well, especially since it was introduced in the ISL, and world-class players have come to visit the region and showcased their talents.He said that expanding the season to nine months is a bold move.Clubs will also compete in two cup competitions, the Durand Cup and the I-League, in addition to the two leagues. More silverware is on sale.Your success is usually judged on how many cups, titles, or caps you won during your time as a player.More competitions increase the chances of winning medals, so more titles are needed.As you mature as a youth player, you want to be involved in these big problems. They will have a great deal of knowledge and experience working in the same climate as they did last season.They would also know that in professional football, winning is the only thing that matters, and that you must do everything possible to ensure that it happens, the 68-year-old said.Gregory also believes that the longer season will give coaches more opportunities to invest in youth and unearth talents that will help with Indian football's success.Gregory cited fellow Briton Owen Coyle as a hero in his second season at Jamshedpur FC, who won the League Winners Shield with a youth-heavy squad, adding that Owen Coyle last season at Jamshedpur was exemplary at developing unknowns in his squad and giving them opportunities to play in the ISL. Owen was suddenly the first choice because they took the opportunity given by the coach, Narender, Rehenesh, Ricky, Boris, and Ritwik Das.Head Coaches are now starting to trust the domestic players.More and more players are embracing early play and taking up the challenge of playing the enchanting game.Many parents are now aware that professional football will give their children or daughters a fulfilling life. Gregory concluded that if you are able to devote yourself to the sport, work really hard and take your chance.
