CFC - Press Meet - Post Match Conference

Vivek Nagul
(On whether Rehenesh foul on Balwant was a penalty): Yes I feel that was a penalty but in the end it is the referee's decision so we have to accept it.

(On the result) : It was two points dropped for us. We are very disappointed because our performance deserved the win. The better team lost two points today.

(On recovering for next game) : It won't be easy now as we have a lot of travelling. But we won't dwell too much on this missed opportunity. We will be charged up for the next game against Pune.

(On Elano) : Elano is a fantastic player and he was incredible again today. He is having a great tournament as he has scored in every game so far. Our strikers showed good energy today. Hopefully they will also get on the scoresheet in the next game.

Dhanachandra Singh

(On bombing up and down) : I have been playing as left back for a long time so I am used to running up and down on the flank. I have to keep improving and be consistent.

(On conceding two goals) : Yes we are disappointed by the manner in which we conceded. There was lack of communication and concentration lapse. We will try to rectify those mistakes in the next game.

CFC PRESS RELEASE : Press Meet

Vivek Nagul
(On the mood in the squad) : The mood is very positive as we came back well to earn a point against Atletico Kolkata. Now we are aiming for maximum points at home tomorrow.

(On the North East side) : They are a fast and youthful side. But we have done our preparations and would look to implement it.

(On rotating players) : It is not easy playing every three days so if needed we will rotate but it will all depend on situation of matches and injuries.

Gouramangi Singh
(On facing NorthEast side) : They are a very talented side but our coaches have done the homework so we would look to be at our best and get the three points tomorrow.

(On playing across the back four) : Yes all my life I have played in central defence but I don't mind doing a job for the team in other positions also. I am getting used to playing in wide roles.

(On learning from experienced foreigners) : For me every game and training session is a learning experience. Of course it helps further when you share the dressing room and pitch with some of the best players in the world. It gives you more confidence.
