Brazilian great Zico to coach Goa in inaugural Indian Super League

  • Print

NEW DELHI - Brazilian great Zico has been signed to coach Goa in the new eight-team Indian Super League next month.

Goa said in a statement on Tuesday that Zico signed the contract in Rio de Janeiro, and it was "honoured" to have him. His most recent manager position was at Al-Gharafa in Qatar, which he left in January, six months into a two-year deal.

Alessandro Del Piero, Robert Pires, David Trezeguet, Fredrik Ljungberg and Luis Garcia are among the big names signed for the inaugural ISL starting on Oct. 12 to Dec. 20.

Former India cricket captains Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly, and a clutch of Indian film actors, have stakes in different ISL teams.
