The former Air India coach is all set to start a new football academy in Mumbai…
Former Air India and Mumbai Tigers coach Bimal Ghosh is all set to launch Wings Mumbai Heroes Football Academy in Bandra (West), Mumbai.
The new academy will be a multi-sports wings sports centre and will provide coaching to both boys and girls starting from age five. The renowned coach will train the budding footballers five days a week.
While the plan has already been put to execution, the launch date of the academy is yet to be finalised as Ghosh is waiting for the Maharashtra state government’s directives to start football activities amidst the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking on the launch of his new academy, the Nagpur FC coach said, “I cannot confirm the exact date for the launch of the academy. But from our side, everything, including all the planning, scheduling and training programmes are finalised. We are only waiting for clearance from the state government.”
