CFC PRESS RELEASE : POST MATCH PRESS CONFERENCE
(On red cards) : I won't comment about the refereeing. All I know is that we showed great character and team spirit to come back in the end. The fans helped us to get back into the game. I hope there is a similar turnout for our next game against NorthEast United on November 8.
On whether it was a point gained or two dropped At the start of the game we wanted maximum points so in that respect it is two dropped but since we scored so late I think it was a point gained for us overall.
(On changing strategy after going down to ten) : Yes it is never easy when you are down to ten but we adapted well. I felt Mendoza had the energy and pace to last the whole game so I kept him on and replaced Maurice who only recently joined the team.
(On if this was the toughest game) : It was a great challenge to play against world class midfielders like Borja and Garcia. But when you have someone like Marco alongside you are more confident. We played as a team and got a point in the end.
(On fighting back) : The crowd kept cheering for us throughout and inspired us to come from behind and earn a point. We are expecting a great atmosphere against NorthEast also on Tuesday.
"Atletico de Kolkata team management have appealed for a review for the second yellow card shown to Jofre Mateu Gonzalez during today's match between Chennaiyin FC and Atletico de Kolkata which also accounts for a red card. Tomorrow the team management will submit the video footage of the incident as well to Match Commissioner.
Said "Our request is that he looks into the matter and reviews the incident and if it is found that the decision of showing the second yellow card was wrong then our request is that Jofre should be allowed to play next match."

CFC PRESS RELEASE : Pre Match Press Meet
On Atletico de Kolkata : They are a very good side with or without Fikru. We have to show the same team spirit and attitude to win tomorrow. It is a good opportunity for us to overtake them but we first have to focus on a good performance
On if he will start again : I don't know. I will decide tomorrow about the team.
On their style of play : People might think we only play on counter attacks but we have scored many goals so it is not only counter attacks. We have showed quality going forward against Mumbai and will try to repeat that tomorrow.
On the match : It is going to be a close game. Atletico are a good side so we have to be at our best on all departments. We are all expecting a good turnout.
On bouncing back against Mumbai : It was important to respond immediately after the defeat to Delhi. It was a convincing win for us but more than that, our performance was exceptional so it will give us a lot of confidence for the next game.
On playing with quality foreigners : Some of us still can't believe that Elano and Marco Materazzi are our teammates. When you have such players around it becomes easy to perform. There is a great understanding between the Indians and foreigners.
