Mumbai, June 27 (IBNS): Giving good news to fans in India, former multiple-title winning Galactico and Spanish international Michel Salgado has signed a three-year deal to play in Premier Futsal.

He has become the latest in a series of global football stars to confirm their participation in the world’s first-ever multi-national futsal league.

The inaugural edition of the tournament will be played soon.

Salgado, part of Real Madrid’s star-studded ‘Galacticos’ line-up that also included Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham, has won four La Liga titles, two UEFA Champions League crowns and an Inter-Continental Cup during his career, the official website of the tournament said.

Michel Salgado was quoted as saying by the website, “Futsal is an extremely underrated sport. It has been the breeding ground for some of the biggest names in football the world over and I’m glad Premier Futsal in India is creating a platform that can showcase the sport and give it its due. I think the talent the league has managed to draw is fantastic with not just futsallers like Falcao but also career football players like Paul Scholes and Deco taking part. It’s almost nostalgic in a way to go up against these players again and I’m really looking forward to reliving the old days and reigniting those old rivalries, this time on the futsal court.”

Premier Futsal Co-founder, Nithyashree Subbantold the website, “It is an honour to announce Michel Salgado as our third marquee signing for Premier Futsal. We have been committed to present Futsal in a way that has never been seen before here in India and we are living up to our commitment. Going up against such storied international talent, Premier Futsal will create the much needed roster of futsal players which can represent India on the international stage. Dinesh, Abhinandan and I have put in a lot of thought to come up with this holistic approach to breed home grown Futsal talent.”

The league will kick-off July 15.
