Former England and Tottenham Hotspur defender Ledley King said though Indian football has progressed extensively in the last few years, the country needed to spread the sport more effectively at the grassroots to emerge a true global power.

King attributed the considerable growth of football here to the Indian Super League.

“We actually got a chance to go to an ISL game on Thursday to watch Bengaluru FC. We’re looking forward to that and that will give us a bigger indication of where the ISL is at now.
