In a first of its kind, Kingfisher East Bengal’s Alvito D’Cunha will undergo a level 2 Uefa coaching course in England from May 21-25. He will be the first footballer from the present generation to pursue a course from a European nation.
Alvita said that he wants to contribute to the game as a coach after retirement. So this was the perfect opportunity for him to make a start. “I have two-three years of football left in me… After retiring, I wanted to remain involved with the game and want to coach sides. So, this course will help me in my endeavour,” he said.
