Panaji: Not being part of team selection is not a problem at all, Brazilian legend and newly-appointed coach of the Indian Super League (ISL) franchise FC Goa Zico said Tuesday, claiming his job was to train the players.
Zico was speaking during an interaction with the media on Tuesday, his first formal briefing after he was signed up by FC Goa. (Also Read: 'Follow the Japan Model for Football Growth in India')
Asked if it was a handicap to train a football team, which he has not helped pick, Zico said: "I do not see any problem. Players belong to the club and not the trainer. It's up to the board of directors to select the players, my job is to train them".
