AIFF has to get its house in order . There is hardly any planning whatsoever.
Firstly, why set criteria, if they are not going to be implemented, you cannot have one rule for one and another rule for others .
Secondly, why cant the federation learn from other successful associations around the world, why conduct the Santosh Trophy during the peak of the I- league division 1and 2. Dont they want the competition to showcase the best indian talent available?and if its mandatory for the players to play for their respective states, who is going to play in the I-league 1 and 2??????
Get it right, or get out because this stuff is not rocket science.
