Indian U17 World Cup star Aniket Jadhav will undergo a three-month training programme at English Championship’s club Blackburn Rovers.
One of six clubs to have won the Premier League title since it’s inception, Blackburn could prove to be a vital step in Jadhav’s career.
Aniket is currently on loan to Indian Arrows from Jamshedpur FC and sounded very excited while revealing the news in his interview with the club’s official website.
He said, “I would like to thank Blackburn Rovers FC for believing in me and my ability and inviting me to train at their world class academy. I am very thankful to Mr. Balaji Rao Sir for this opportunity. I would also like to thank my agent Jehan Kothari of KSMN sports and my current club Jamshedpur FC who have been very supportive of this opportunity and have assured their complete support.”
Additionally, Mukul Choudhari, CEO of Jamshedpur FC said in conclusion, “We are very happy for Aniket. Infact, very rarely Indian football players get such an opportunity and if they get it at this age, it is just fantastic! As this will only help him grow and enhance his skills further. It’s going to be a win-win for everybody. As Jamshedpur FC, we congratulate Aniket for his talent and the opportunity that he’s got which we are sure he will make the best of it and come back as a much better player and make us proud.”
