Mohammedan Sporting is willing to do all it can to ensure that Anwar Ali’s promising football career is not short of a congenital heart condition – even if it means he has to play less than 60 minutes per match. Mohammedan Sporting Secretary Dipendu Biswas said on Wednesday that his club is ready to give 30 minutes of playing time per 20-year-old game, which is set to be met. Furthermore, the club would have no objection to arranging training sessions for Ali under special supervision.
Biswas, a former international player from India, has also taken to the three plains-heavy grounds, citing his own example – as well as some foreign players – who have played the game with similar positions for years.
Biswas told PTI, “An England and Manchester United player who was revealed to have a similar situation, will now play for the team for 60 minutes and will be training under surveillance. We are ready to follow in his footsteps.”
“And as you know, I played for so many years in the top-flight with a similar position.”
After eagerly awaiting the All India Football Federation’s medical committee’s decision on his future in competitive football after another round of medical tests and tests, Ali has written to the AIFF, stating that stopping the game from playing for him ” Capital punishment “.
“Article 21 of the Constitution of India guarantees me the right to earn a living for myself.
“If I want to take an informed risk and be prepared to monitor my condition with the help of medical experts, then it is ultimately my choice, whether I want to risk playing football professionally,” he wrote in the letter is.
The only bread earner from a poor family in Adampur village near Jalandhar, Ali said it would be very difficult for him to make ends meet without football.
Biswas said, “He (Ali) is a good prospect for the country, and will be an asset to any team, not just Mohammedan. The big league is waiting for him and we are seriously eyeing the ISL spot as well In which an investor has been found. “
“Certainly at the end of the day we will follow the decision of the AFC and AIFF, but it would be unfair if he is not playing football right now,” he said.
The Federation’s medical committee is currently deciding whether or not to allow Ali to play, sending his report to the Asian Football Confederation. He was recently asked to stop training.
Ali was a regular in India’s campaign at the Under-17 World Cup in 2017. He also scored the winner against the Argentina U-20 team during a friendly match at the COTIF tournament in Spain.
The center-back was named among the potential players for the Kings Cup in Thailand in 2019 by India’s senior team head coach Igor Stimack. But the test report from France, where he went to consult with a well-known expert, prevented him from joining the camp. .
Ali’s career has been hanging in the balance since he was diagnosed with the condition. This eventually prompted him to terminate his contract with ISL side Mumbai City FC after consulting with top doctors in France and Mumbai.
After his promising debut at the Minerva Punjab Academy in Panchkula, he was part of the Indian Arrow, the developmental side of the AIFF.
