ISL 2014: FC Pune City drew 1-1 with chennaiyin fc
POST MATCH PRESS MEET OF CHENNAIYIN FC '
(On the result) : We feel we have dropped two points again as we created plenty of chances and hit the woodwork twice. Luck was not on our side today while Pune goalkeeper Arindam Bhattacharya was also in great form. (On Elano's penalty miss): Yes I couldn't believe it. I was sure he would score. But these things happen in football, I am confident Elano will convert the next penalty that he gets. (On Mendoza's performance) : He was outstanding today. We are not surprised at all, because we have seen him in training. He has great individual quality and was unlucky not to score more goals today.
(On the missed chances) : Yes we missed a lot of chances and were also a bit unlucky sometimes, especially in the first half. Marco just told us to keep going and we were eventually rewarded.
(On FC Pune City) : They are a good side and they also had a lot of chances but I think we could have won this with a bit more luck. We will try to get maximum points again in the next game.

Pre Match Press Meet - Chennaiyin FC
(On the game against FC Pune City) : Tomorrow is a very important game for us as we have the chance to go top at the end of the first phase. Pune City are a quality side and they showed that by winning away at Atletico de Kolkata in their last game.
(On needing to win after two draws): The first draw against Atletico de Kolkata felt good as we scored late in the game but the last match we should have won. However the mood is still very positive in the squad so we are aiming for maximum points.
(On Elano's form) : He is a very important player for us. We have other quality players also like Bruno Pelissari and Cristian Hidalgo. But Elano of course is class. Not everybody gets more than 50 caps for Brazil. Hopefully he will maintain his great goal-scoring form in the ISL.
