New Delhi, Jul 17 (UNI) The only football franchise representing Northern India in the Hero Indian Super League (HERO ISL), the Delhi Dynamos Football Club (DDFC) introduced their new Head Coach, Miguel Angel Portugal here today. The Spaniard will assume responsibilty of the team from this year's ISL, replacing Italian Legend Gianluca Zambrotta. The 61-year-old ex-Real Madrid midfielder has played for many renowned Spanish clubs including Valladoid and Rayo Vallecano to name but a few. Portugal was also a part of the Real Madrid team that won the double in 1979. Portugal was also a part of the Spanish U23 and amateur national teams in 1979. He also worked with Racing Santander. Prior to joining Delhi Dynamos Football Club, Portugal was coach of the Algerian premier league club CS Constantinois. Aspire Academy, a Doha-based world-renowned football academy with whom DDFC signed a partnership last month, played a crucial role in the search for Mr. Portugal. Speaking at his first ever media-session in India, Mr. Portugal said, “I am looking forward to joining the ISL in India. Being involved with Delhi Dynamos FC is a great opportunity to be a part of the growing football revolution that is taking shape in the country. When I was in Algeria, the ISL was always a point of discussion. During meetings with my team, I saw a few of the Delhi Dynamos FC games on video and I was impressed with the players’ attacking football. The club truly plays like a lion and it wasn’t a difficult decision for me to sign up to play my part in shaping the club’s future success.” More UNI RSD SHK 1856
