Last month, the former Liverpool and England midfielder said he would not accept a transfer offer. However, the 43-year-old changed his mind and became the latest known player to join the growing league.

Where legends are found. We are excited to announce Steven Gerrard as our new head coach, Al-Ettifaq wrote on Twitter.
The 43-year-old coach led Rangers to their first Scottish title in 10 years in 2021 before heading to Aston Villa, from which he was fired last October.
Gerrard’s move is the latest in a string of those that followed after Al-Nassr signed Cristiano Ronaldo last December. Former Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema moved to Al Ittihad in June.
Al-Ittifaq finished seventh in the Saudi Pro League last season.
He signed a three-year contract and will join Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante in the Saudi champion.
Hota … is officially yellow, the club tweeted, announcing the arrival of another European player in the country’s lucrative Pro League.
Earlier on Monday, Marcelo Brozovic completed the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo from Inter Milan to Al-Nassr.
Liverpool icon Steven Gerrard was also announced as the new manager of Al Attifaq.
Iota, 24, impressed at Celtic, where he scored 21 goals in 62 games after initially moving to Benfica on loan.
He won two Scottish titles and a triumph that included the Scottish Cup and the Scottish League Cup last season.
All members of Celtic Football Club wish Hoth success in his future career, the club said in a statement.
Also at the executive committee meeting in Bengaluru on Monday, the day before the annual general meeting and the first under President Kalyan Chaubey, it was decided to appoint Satyanarayan M as deputy general secretary. Satyanarayan is the general secretary of the Karnataka State Football Association.
The AIFF budget for 2022-23 was about ₹87 crore, an AIFF official said by phone from Bengaluru. Unauthorized to speak to the media, the official asked for anonymity. AIFF receives ₹50 crore from the commercial partners of Football Sports Development Limited and lendshe ₹25 crore from the central government, the official said. With the help of some state governments and annual grants from FIFA, we are confident that we will be able to cover the deficit.
The executive committee also approved a development grant of ₹24 lakhs to each state and a soccer schools project for children aged 6-12. AIFF can charge a license fee, the committee decided. AIFF also decided to appoint Deloitte to conduct an internal audit.
By appointing a reputable company to conduct an internal audit (AIFF rules require one every month), the federation shows that it is serious about transparency in financial transactions. This is the idea of the main committee, said the AIFF representative.
Formed last month after federation members drew attention to soaring costs, including but not limited to hiring, the AIFF core committee is supposed to oversee recruitment, procurement, etc.
In the ISL, foreign players occupy key positions, and every time we come to camp, we have to tell ourselves that no foreigner here is going to ask for the ball. Many Indian players also have different responsibilities with clubs and the national team, he said. So if we want to achieve what coach (Igor Stimac) wants, we need time.
Thapa agreed with goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu that joint training for more than six weeks has helped India win six and draw two of their last eight games, with seven draws. This is the first time I’ve seen an Arab team lose time, he said, referring to the semifinal against Lebanon, which India won 4-2 on a tie-break after the opener ended inconclusively.

It was India’s best team in the SAFF competition, which included Thapa. In terms of the opponents we faced and because of the way we performed against Lebanon and Kuwait.
Thapa said he felt stronger now and attributed it to the professor. That’s the name of Luka Radman, the strength and fitness coach who worked with Croatia’s 1998 World Cup third-place team and the country’s basketball team that won silver at the 1992 Olympics. When he’s in the gym, he does the exercises he asks us to do. We canto be embarrassed if we don’t do what a man who is almost 60 can do. Radman is 62 years old.
In four years under Radman, Th.first noticed this change in attitude in the final round of the Asian Cup qualifier in Calcutta in June 2022.
As an 18-year-old midfielder trained at the elite All India Football Federation academy, Thapa was sent by club Chennaiyin to FC Metz from Ligue 1 for an internship. The move to Mohun Bagan on a five-year contract, said to cost ₹18 crore, including transfer fees, runs counter to the idea of testing himself in a tougher league, but Thapa justifies it by saying that ISL is also growing.
Not that Mohun Bagan is without hardship. They play to win. If a player is doing well, they want him on the team. They won’t look to see if there is another player in his place. So the challenge in front of me will be to keep my place on the team that is the Indian champion, he said.
As expected, Martinez’s arrival drew a huge crowd at the airport, where he was received by Mohun Bagan officials, after which the Argentine checked into a five-star hotel on EM Bypass. Martinez will participate in a host of events scheduled for the next two days.
I feel great. It’s a beautiful country. I’m happy to be here. I’m very excited. I promised I would come to India, and here I am. This is a place I’ve always wanted to come to, Martinez told reporters.
Martinez’s itinerary will officially begin with a program called Tahader Katha on Tuesday afternoon, where the goalie will interact with schoolchildren at Biswa Bangla Mela Prangan.
He will then travel to the Mohun Bagan court, where he will reportedly congratulate ten Bengal goalkeepers, including Bhaskar Ganguly and Hemantha Dora.
In the evening he will also attend an exhibition match between the Mohun Bagan All Stars and the Kolkata Police All Stars.
On Wednesday, which is the final day of Martinez’s trip, the Argentine will visit the Sreebhumi Club in Lake Town and attend Paanch e Paanch. There, he will award the program’s winners and attend a youth soccer clinic at Santos Mitre Square.
The goalkeeper flew to Calcutta after visiting the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka, where he also met with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
