Antonio Habas Wants ATKMB to Cultivate a Habit of Winning

The skilled Indian football players from ATK Mohun Bagan (ATKMB) have started their 2021-22 Indian Super League (ISL) campaign brilliantly. After all, the Kolkata club picked up two convincing wins in opening matches against Kerala Blasters and East Bengal respectively. And now, their head coach Antonio Habas wants ATKMB to cultivate a habit of winning in the ISL.

ATK Mohun Bagan have confidently won over two other ISL giants across just as many games already. And they dominated on both occasions, especially in the Kolkata derby.

Coach Antonio Habas even dedicated this derby win over East Bengal to Mohun Bagan legend Chuni Goswami.

However, on Wednesday evening, ATKMB will have to face a stern test. ATKMB go up against Mumbai City FC against, whom they lost both the League Shield and ISL trophy last season.

But ATK Mohun Bagan coach Antonio Habas does not have revenge on his mind ahead of facing Mumbai City FC.

Instead, he views the fixture with fresh dynamics and expresses a confident attitude about his players.

Habas said: “I think this is an absolutely different match. There is a new coach in Mumbai City and some new players as well. They are not the same team for me. They have changed from last season. Mumbai are a good team and so are we. The 90 minutes on the pitch will make the difference.”

“It is important to win every day. We have to get the three points and more importantly we have to get into the habit of winning. It is a very positive feeling,” the ATKMB head coach opined.

And indeed, Bagan have looked more offensive this season and have created plenty of chances in both their matches hitherto.

However, their goal-conversion has not been top notch as they have been wasteful with their finishing in the penalty box.

“It is not possible to win matches by six-seven goals every day,” Habas defended this point, though. “The big clubs in the world also win by two-three goals mostly. And maybe one day five. We have to find the balance. Winning the match and three points are the most important things.”
