Mumbai: Brazilian legend Zico, the high-profile coach in the upcoming Indian Super League, on Tuesday said the two-and-half month long league would help the 158th ranked India to improve their footballing skills and produce great talents in future.

"Football has to go through a process so that it becomes successful here too. Since this League is going to attract a lot of players from Italy, Portugal, Spain, France, I think India has much to learn from all these top players," Zico told reporters here.

"They will keep on playing for many long years so that the football keeps on growing. I hope that all of them keep on improving and give their best performance. This league will definitely grow to produce great footballers," he added.
