FOOT­BALL THRILLS

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

NCP supremo Sharad Pawar is a cricket fan but se­nior leader Pra­ful Pa­tel likes a wholly dif­fer­ent ball­game. On Novem­ber 8, Pa­tel flew to Abu Dhabi to at­tend the Un­der-17 Foot­ball World Cup. As pres­i­dent of All In­dia Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion, Pa­tel takes his ex­tracur­ric­u­lar as­sign­ment very se­ri­ously. He is be­lieved to have been quite de­jected when his plans for IMG-Re­liance-spon­sored In­dia Su­per League fiz­zled out due to lack of prepa­ra­tion.
