So every time when we go to play out in different stadiums, we have to add up to that situation. And we always knew it it’s going to be tough. And it made tougher when we went 2 -0 down.

Who would you love to face in the Finals?

Fingers crossed. We will give our best, and I hopefully, in the next match, I guess, we’ll be able to win the match and we’ll be able to reach the final. Both Odisha FC or Mohun Bagan are good teams.

They bring us different challenges. And whoever comes in the final or whoever reaches final, there will be a challenge. No one is going down easily. We have to be ready for, whatever the opponent provide us. So, yeah, we have to be ready for everything.

How was the 2023-24 Football season for you?

I feel my season went great because I think till now I can remember only one mistake which led to a goal. And I think, it happens in a football match, that everyone’s makes a mistake. And it’s up to us how we come back from that situation. I feel, we had a great season because I think not only me, but the entire team contributed to those clean sheets.
