Portugal blasted, Kerala Blasters didn't play football...

Rajat Dhamija  |  Indian Super League  |  1 Year Ago

Following their seventh defeat in the last eight matches, Delhi Dynamos’ humiliated headcoach Miguel Angel Portugal responded to the yet again home defeat in the most outrageous manner. When asked about Dynamos’ defending in the second half, Portugal stated:

 

“Kerala Blasters were far from playing football on the pitch”

 

The match began with Blasters’ talismanic forward Iain Hume netting one home in the 13th minute into the game to a Pekuson cross into the box. Though Dynamos managed to head one home as well to go stalemate into half time. , but failed to impress despite the change in strategy and formation by the Spaniard.  The second half saw heartbreak for all Dynamos fans as Hume netted twice to mark his fifth ISL Hat trick as the final score marked 1-3 in Delhi.



Well, all of that didn’t impress Delhi’s head coach and he continued lambasting on the poor strategy with which Kerala Blasters took the field.

 

"I don’t have any problems with the refereeing or the other team. Today only one team played football – The Delhi Dynamos. The other team scored three goals on the night but Delhi had a lot of chances to draw, even win."

 

"I do not see the change in football for Kerala. They did not play football. They played the same long-ball football as before," criticized Portugal.


Which side is likely to make it to the Top-4?
Delhi Dynamos
Kerala Blasters
