Aizawl FC the I-League club from Mizoram signed Jahar Das an AIFF “A” license holder for the duration of August 2015 till May 2016 in line with the upcoming I-League season.
The vastly experienced, newly signed Head of Youth Development Jahar Das had visited Mizoram a few times in the past and has been invited by the Secretary of the Mizoram Football Association to see firsthand the level of development of players and the availability of talents in Mizoram.
The new Head of Youth Development had played an important role in the development of well known professional Mizo football players like Ari Benjamin, B.Malsawmzuala, Zaidinmawia, Rozama, Sawmzuala and last but not the least the present Captain of Aizawl FC senior team David Rinmuana.
Jahar Das said “seeing the development of players in the senior and junior team in the past years, some improvement can be done with a proper planning”.
The President of Aizawl FC Robert R Royte delightedly said “Jahar Das is a well known figure in Indian football, he has groomed a good number of Mizo players, the club as a whole, players as well as the coaching staffs of various Aizawl FC academies will grow under the able guidance of our new Head of Youth Development Programme. Our philosophy is to “catch them young, develop and use them”.
He said Aizawl FC needs experienced personnel like Das to fulfil its aspiration. Instead of purchasing players, we give focus on developing them; hence we recruit Spanish Coach Manuel Retamero Fraile as Head Coach and Jahar Das as Head of Youth Development Program.
William Koso an AFC “B” license & Level 2 Goal Keeping coach License holder will also join Aizwal FC team tomorrow.
