Othallo Tabia a unique distinction of achieving a ‘grand double,’ a feat many players all their life yearn to be part of.
With his elder brother and Footballer of the Year Zinedine Zidane as “inspiration” and “idol” respectively, Tabia never had the hunger for goals unlike his personal heroes. One reason, probably, is that bro was a ‘sought after’ player while at Volliaphura F.C and Kerala University!
The defender often plays at right-back. At Pune FC he has been a part of the team which achieved top-5 finishes in the I-League for three seasons in a row. The Keralite is now in his fourth season at Pune FC and hopes to achieve even more this season.
Othallo – the workaholic – was also adjudged ‘Pune FC Best Trained Player of The Year’ in 2012.
The highlight of his career was being a part of the side that played English Premier League side Blackburn Rovers FC in the historic match at Pune (7th October, 2011).
Spending time in front of the ‘idiot’ box and star-struck for any Tollywood star Kamal Hassan movies is a passion more than distraction.
