Indian Super League (ISL) side, Kerala Blasters FC’s reserve team coach and head of youth development, Tomasz Tchórz has admitted that head coach, Ivan Vukomanovic is keeping a close eye on the performances of youngsters currently playing in the Reliance Foundation Development League (RFDL).
Tchórz is the youngest head coach of the Kerala side in what is the inaugural edition of the RFDL and he has performed an admirable job so far, with the Blasters currently placed second in the league table with 12 points from four games – with the club currently unbeaten.
The 29-year-old has admitted that the RFDL is providing a good platform for youngsters to get experience on the pitch and that Vukomanovic is looking to pick a few players from the reserve team for the senior sides upcoming preseason camp.

“Ivan is very impressed by the organisation, quality of games, by the performance of our team and he is also looking for players who might join the pre-season camp for the next campaign of the hero ISL because as you know now four players born in and after 2002 have to be a part of the squad,” he said in an interaction on ISL’s official YouTube channel
“And in our KBFC case, we had a lot of talents last season who were born in 2001. We provided for young people the highest number of minutes they played in the league. But now it will be different story because of the existing squad, if I’m not wrong, it was only Givson who was born in 2002. We still need at least three players that we can promote in the next season.
“That is why they are watching our games closely,” Tchórz added.
The Blasters had an incredible run in the last ISL season, only to fall at the final hurdle where they lost to eventual winners, Hyderabad FC on penalties.
