Jamshedpur switched off’ - Owen Coyle rues lapses in concentration in defeat to Kerala Blasters

Jamshedpur boss Owen Coyle said that the goalkeeping error by TP Rehenesh in the second half cost his team.

After the game, head coach Owen Coyle blamed a lack of concentration for the loss.

"We were up for the game and I think because you get the extra man advantage, one or two lapses in concentration gifted the goals. (We had) numerous chances to score. 10 or 11 men, if you give away a soft goal, then you’ll be punished.

What we did is we switched off, there was a lack of concentration and individual errors. One or two players switched off. People tend to over analyse the situation. We tend to make mistakes and paid a heavy price for that," he added.

“I think TP has been outstanding this season. Ultimately, when a goalkeeper makes a mistake, that results in a goal. That has cost us a point tonight. But listen we will pick him up and we will go again. He needs to mentally strong and go again. As simple as that,” Coyle said.


They do not just attack’ - ATK Mohun Bagan coach Antonio Habas feels Mumbai City are tough to stop

ATK Mohun Bagan coach Antonio Habas dismissed suggestions that his side’s upcoming Indian Super League (ISL) clash against Mumbai City on Monday is a battle between ATKMB’s stingy defence and Mumbai’s prolific attack.

“I don’t think that Mumbai is a team that only attacks. They have good progressional play and counter attacks [too]. It’s very difficult to stop their team because they always play forward but I don’t think it’s a match between attacking and defending because football is a game of attacking and defending. Both teams have transitions from one side to the other,” he continued to explain.

“The importance of a match depends on the moment. Now it’s a match between the first (Mumbai City) and second teams [on the table]. Maybe two or three weeks later, the match may not have the same importance but the idea is to continue playing in the same way to get three points [in every game].”


Important but not crucial’ - Sergio Lobera feels ATK Mohun Bagan are ‘a good test’ for Mumbai City

Mumbai City coach Sergio Lobera called for focus from his side ahead of their Indian Super League (ISL) tie against ATK Mohun Bagan on Monday. Both teams are neck-to-neck at the top of the table, with the Kolkatan outfit (20 points) trailing by just two points.

Lobera felt that the standings do not really matter at this stage, with more than half of the season still left to be played. However, he feels that playing against ATK Mohun Bagan will be a test of his team’s mettle.

"I think it’s going to be an important game but not crucial. It’s just half of the competition and in this league, everything can change in a short time. Sometimes you have three games in seven days and the most important thing is to keep our focus on improving ourselves.

“Tomorrow’s game is a good test for us but it’s [to get] three points more against a very good team,” he said.

We need to continue improving’ - Mumbai City boss Sergio Lobera eyes ISL title following win over ATK Mohun Bagan

The Islanders are now five points clear of the Kolkata giants at the top of the Indian Super League (ISL) table after 10 rounds of games.

Mumbai City head coach Sergio Lobera said that his side worked hard against the strong backline of ATK Mohun Bagan and he is happy with their performance.

“We know the plans of ATK Mohun Bagan and we tried the to improve against a very good defensive team. I’m very happy with the performance of my team specially in the first-half, I think we created chances and we had good opportunities.

Unfair footbal!’ - Antonio Habas unhappy with Mumbai City’s goal following defeat

ATK Mohun Bagan suffered their second defeat of the season as they went down 0-1 against table-toppers Mumbai City in an Indian Super League (ISL) clash on Monday.

I didn’t see much of a difference between Mumbai City and ATK Mohun Bagan today. They got two chances and we got two chances. I am very angry with the team’s performance in the first 45 minutes. The team did not find the pace to play but in the second half we improved and maybe we could have scored an equaliser.

“The idea was to press high from the first minute but they didn’t understand and did not press high. The team didn’t play well but I don’t remember more than one chance of Mumbai in the first half,” said Habas after the game.

The two-time ISL-winning coach did not like Mumbai City’s decision of continuing the match and then scoring from that move after Edu Garcia had gone down due to an injury and he called it unfair.

“When the move happened we were a man down. Edu was down on the ground and they should have kicked the ball out but they continued and scored when we had one player less. It was not fair play and it wasn’t good for us,” said the Mariners’ boss.
