India’s legendary female footballer Bala Devi has said that she has got to learn a lot of new things by playing with European club ‘Rangers Woman FC‘. He said, “The Rangers Club has many good players from Scotland, Canada, USA, France. It is a big challenge for me to play with them, but I am learning a lot from them. We talk on football most of the time, which is a good thing.”

Player meets player

During his conversation with AIFF TV, Bala, 30, said that the new CE has helped football players a lot. She said, “Currently we have to put GPS in our shoes. This helps in tracking the performance of each player. GPS can be detected by the ball which we kick or pass with our feet. Apart from this, it also helps to know that the players have covered many distances and how much they have traveled. With this, we try to improve our performance in practice sessions.”

Bal Dev is missing India

Bala has been living in Glasgow, Scotland since joining the Rangers Club and is also missing his country. He was still in Glasgow during the lockdown caused by Corona and was doing indoor training. He said that Rangers’ playing style also resembles that of India. Bala said, ‘I am playing here in the same way as I play for India. Here I have to physically exert more stress. The players here are more fit and I lose myself according to the weather. ‘

Bala said, “I miss my house many times. However the purpose of coming here is known and I have many expectations. I am trying to give my best in football. Bala signed an 18-month deal with Scottish football club Rangers in January this year. She is also the first Indian female footballer to play in a European club.”
