PARTH JINDAL ISSUES OPEN CHALLENGE


Bengaluru FC Owner and Jindal Scion, Parth Jindal, issued a Challenge to all the ISL teams to play a game against his team and beat them.



This tweet comes out less than a week before Hero ISL's 2nd season starts, though the Challenge may not have any takers as most of the ISL teams have already planned their Pre-Season practice matches. Also, it would be interesting to know which players will appear for Bengaluru FC as most of the star players like Sunil Chhetri, Robin Singh, Rino Anto, etc are on loan to various clubs.

Parth Jindal, an avid Arsenal Fan, launched Bengaluru FC, after getting a direct entry to I League by AIFF, in 2013 and the team went to win the League in its debut season, becoming the first club to do so. They also represented India in AFC Champions League Preliminary Round where they lost against Malaysian Side, Johar Darul Takzim, in a match that went into Extra Time. They represented India in 2015 AFC Cup along with East Bengal FC, where they made it to the Round 16. In a short span of 2 years the club has managed to become a symbol of professionalism and an example to other clubs on how to run a football club.

Parth Jindal has been a known critic of Indian Super League and has aired his displeasure in the past too. In an interview to TIMES OF INDIA in June 2015 he expressed that "ISL is not the right avenue to develop Indian Football." and  "I still don't feel ISL is the platform that will take Indian Football forward"

He has also express his unhappiness over ISL pushing I-League's start to January, as AIFF has blocked October-December window for ISL. This is what he tweeted, expressing his frustration.


I-League, India's Premier Football League, will start in January 2016, in what will be only a Four and a half month League. Also, with Clubs like Pune FC and Bharat FC's rumoured closure are not helping its case.
