ISL is only two seasons old and hence too early to predict if like a lot of other global leagues, some clubs will continue to languish at the bottom. But another poor season should get a club like Mumbai City FC worried.That’s one reason they have chosen not to be economical in their choice of a marquee player. Diego Forlan, the 2010 World Cup Golden ball winner is no mean pick, rumoured to be the most expensive player this ISL.With the new guideline allowing the exclusion of marquee players from the squad’s salary cap, clubs have been free to break bank if they wish to. Mumbai City FC has done so in roping in Forlan after Athletico de Kolkata, also in the race for the Uruguayan striker dropped out.Like a lot of other foreign stars, Forlan may have come in for the quick buck the league offers in a short time but quietly makes his point about the scheduling challenge that comes with a short league. “It’s going to be difficult for everyone to have so many games in a short period of time. I hope to go game by game and see how it goes,” he told India Today in an interview.

But both the stars were far from spectacular on the field or off the bench. advertisementThe team keeping with the trend of training overseas had their pre season in Dubai where the squad had the first taste of training with Forlan. “Dubai was good. That’s where we got together and started to know and go about training with each other,” says Forlan. With a new ground in the suburbs, a new coach in Alexandre Guimaraes and a new marquee signing, the Mumbai club will look to find their feet this season.”It will be an interesting league and I look forward to play many games in a short time. I hope it gets bigger and bigger.” Forlan makes the right noises for ISL; Mumbai City FC would hope he can successfully roll back the years on the playing pitch as well.
