A four-day special reconversion course conducted by the All India Football Federation (AIFF) in association with Sports Authority of India (SAI) came to a close on Thursday.

The course saw 48 coaches take part in two daily sessions across four days to take Indian football forward together as part of the AIFF's plan to guide SAI coaches across the country towards understanding the coaching methodologies of the AIFF, in line with the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), a statement said.
