New coach Bozidar Bandovic says the staff’s precedence is to be within the high 4, after a disappointing ISL season
Bozidar Bandovic, the brand new head coach of Chennaiyin FC, has his job minimize out.
While the inventive midfielder Rafael Crivellaro of Brazil has been retained, there are 5 slots remaining for the foreigners to be crammed. Those who shall be picked, can have to combine with the Indian gamers in fast time.
The 51-year-old from Montenegro, who has vast expertise and data in dealing with high golf equipment in Eastern Europe and the Balkan area akin to Red Star Belgrade and Olympiacos, not to point out his profitable stint with Buriram United in Thailand, needs to be up for the massive problem. Especially after Chennaiyin endured a poor season ending eighth on the desk.
In an interview to The Hindu, Bandovic stated the staff’s precedence is to be within the high 4. “Yes. The team had a poor season in the last edition. Of course we will now start to bring the players. They will help the team more and make a difference in the field and of course we will try to improve the team in both attack and defence and do everything to score more goals and be in a better position on the table to be in the top four,” he stated.
While refusing to critically analyse the earlier coach for the disastrous present, Bandovic stated the 17 targets the staff scored, of which few have been penalties, have been clearly not sufficient, if the staff wanted to win. “I looked at the games, but I cannot judge my colleagues because every coach is trying his best. The team [Chennaiyin] didn’t win even one game at home. Of the 17 goals, if I am right four or five were scored from penalties, and if you want to be in the top four, this is very little for one team. But we need to improve, especially in attacking,” he stated.
He welcomed the Indian Super League growing the variety of Indian gamers from six to seven, however insisted it is the duty for the membership to improve its home gamers.
“…But of course if our [India’s] young players show good performances, we will try to improve them and we will try to improve some players from the defense too. But for me, the main thing is to improve domestic players. Of course, the change [number of players] is one point but still the coaches in the team or the Academy will have to work very hard and [put] quality work to improve domestic players,” he stated, whereas emphasising that the important thing for him shall be to preserve the ball, management the sport and on the identical time rating as many targets.
