The boys from the B Team have learnt a lot from this game: Cuadrat

The Boss Discusses A Heavy Defeat In The Final Game Of The League Stages

On opponents Jamshedpur FC…

We know that Jamshedpur is a good team, and we had a lot of problems during the first game at home. It was 1-1 and then we scored to take the lead. We were close to getting the three points, but they managed to equalise late on to make it 2-2. They have showed that they are competitive. They have been having a good season, and playing some good games.

On the big defeat…

Why did we lose? Because we were playing with a lot of B Team players. We used six BFC B players, who a month ago were playing in the BDFA Super Division League, and they won a game with a 11-0 score line. Edmund, scored six goals in that game, a double hat-trick. But I can tell you that he has learnt a lot more today, than from the game which he won 11-0. So, we have to be serious about how football is.

I knew before the game that we could be beaten and have a very bad result, but because we have the points to finish first, we can do this and give the experience to the boys. They have to play against Tiri, against Memo, against Mario, and they have to test themselves. This is essential to improve as a professional. I also have to thank the rest of the senior players that have been helping them, like Xisco, Luisma and Rino. We were very competitive in the first half, and we played some serious football. It could have easily been 0-2, and if we were up 0-2 it would have been a different game because the other team would have gone down in morale, you never know. But the difference in the Bengaluru and Jamshedpur today was a big one. We have to understand that these guys did not have experience in the ISL.

On Jamshedpur as a footballing city…

I have been in the facilities of the team, and they do have some great facilities. Much better than the facilities we have in Bengaluru. There are kids waiting for us, clapping, asking for pictures, t-shirts, and it is nice to see that they love the game. I am very happy that Jamshedpur is in the ISL, it is great for football.
