David Platt is creating a team of legends in India

Tom Victor

After a shaky start, this could be the year that the Indian Super League catches fire.

It’s already started to challenge MLS for the signings of top players who have seen better days, and David Platt’s Pune City team are a prime example.

Last year’s squad might have had a bigger star name in David Trezeguet, but this time around they’re a who’s-who of players who make you go “oh, that’s where they are”.

An England international defender in Nicky Shorey, former big-name Premier League signings Didier Zokora, Adrian Mutu and Tuncay, and now the coup de grace, the man they call ‘The Relegator’, Roger Johnson.

Just imagine how good they’ll be when they have 11 players.

Are we excited? We can’t believe you even had to ask.
