I will keep coming to watch the matches whenever I can," he added.The head coach also mentioned how most of the players in the Blue Tigers unit came through the ranks in the I-League and offered his assurance that he will support the players as much as he can."Most players in the Indian senior national team came through the I-League. I look forward to seeing the players in action and supporting them in what they do as much as possible. I want to assure them that they should not feel lonely or forgotten because they have great importance for Indian football and its future," Stimac said. The I-League 2019-20 begins on November 30, as Aizawl FC host Mohun Bagan at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Aizawl. All the matches will be broadcast on DSport. (ANI)
