Top Coaches of Pro Kabaddi Season 10

Coaches play an important role in any sport and kabaddi is no different. From creating workout routines to extracting optimum performances from players and ensuring everyone is in peak fitness conditions, a kabaddi coach has numerous roles besides sharing his tactical acumen with the team. Selecting the right personnel, substitutes and combinations for one’s team are a few other important facets of coaching. However, at the end of the day, a coach is judged by how much success he brings to his team. With that in mind, we have a look at the best coaches from the recently-concluded Pro Kabaddi Season 10.

Season 9 saw him finish as runners-up with Puneri Paltan as their head coach before leading the Paltan to their maiden Pro Kabaddi League triumph in the following edition, making him the most successful coach in PKL history.
