Football is one of the most popular sports in India after cricket. India has some of the oldest football clubs in Asia, Mohun Bagan (now ATK Mohun Bagan) and East Bengal. Kolkata is known as the Mecca of Indian Football as both these oldest clubs are from Kolkata, West Bengal.

However, Indian Football is not on par with world football as they have failed to reach the World Cup until now. India Football Men’s team are now currently ranked at 104 while the Women’s team are ranked at 56.

Indian Super League (ISL) has somewhat been able to revolutionize Indian Football and make it popular in the world. Now, some of the top football players have come to India to play in ISL at some point in time and continue to do so.

Here’s the name of the highest paid player and coach in Indian Football of all time
