SCEB’s Interim Coach Won’t Allow Mumbai City FC to Punish Them
In this case, the Red and Golds’ interim, Renedy Singh, has voiced what he is working on with his boys. This is in order to make it ‘difficult’ for the defending champions who are looking to reclaim the top spot.
“The way the boys fought and defended in the last match, I was really happy to see. The only thing is, when we get the ball, can we play with a little more confidence? That’s what we all are working on right now,” Singh stated.
Turning his attention to Friday’s tie after this, the current (interim) coach in charge of East Bengal said, “We have to think about our team first before we think about the opponent – how can we hurt them, how can we defend well. If we do our duties well, it will be difficult for them, too.
“Mumbai is one of the best attacking sides in the league and we know what they have done in the last few years. If we allow them to play, they can punish us.”
