Eelco Schattorie wants no introduction to Indian football. This yr, Eelco will not be a part of any ISL crew however that doesn’t imply he’s away from Indian football. Now an analyst on Star Sports, he has developed a “dream project” for the development of Indian football.

He instructed Indian Express that GAME (Game Analysis Methodology with Eelco) is an endeavour to current match evaluation in a complete manner. The project generally is a learners’ information for those that are new to the sphere of football evaluation and commentary.

There are three ranges to the project — Level 1, 2 and Masterclass, having greater than 15 hours of video content material, together with dwell classes with Eelco, together with hands-on entry to software program for use for free for 30 days and help in getting ready analytical stories.

Eelco instructed Indian Express, “I know the passion of football here in India. Lot of good things are happening now, which will shape Indian football and bring out the best. As a coach, I felt that understanding the game more analytically across all segments, be it player, coach, management or scouts can be a real big asset for any developing football ecosystem.”

He added, “I created this course for Indian football, so that each one has an analytical insight, which will help them to have a bigger picture of the game. An education institute is working hard to create it as a course ideal for Indian system. I feel it will be a comprehensive course for match analysis and beneficial for all.”

Eelco Schattorie has at all times been a pathbreaker in Indian football. In 2013, when he got here to India with Prayag United, they have been the IFA Shield winners. Then in 2015, he was East Bengal head coach and subsequently was a part of Northeast United and Kerala Blasters in 2018 and 2019.

Eelco has at all times been a darling to followers, be it the ‘Highlanders’ or the ‘Manajpadda’, due to his sport philosophy and character. He has at all times been accessible, participating and has introduced a constructive sport fashion, which has created a novel bond between him and Indian football followers. His new project — GAME — is now able to serve to-be pundits.
