Kerala Blasters’ new head coach David James was the happy manager amongst the two last night in Delhi. His star studded side beat the host Delhi Dynamos by a margin of two goals to strengthen their claim for the Knockout spot. It wasn’t long ago that The Yellows sacked their boss Rene Meulensteen concerning the poor performances and getting a straight away win puffed the Englishman’s heart with sheer joy.



Conversing with the media, Jubiliant David didn’t refrain from cracking jokes, including one of his own players Wes Brown and Dimitar Berbatov, who happened to have played against him during his stay at Manchester United.


“I can’t recall him scoring any[goals] over me”, quipped the ex-England and ManCity goalkeeper in response to the question posed by the Jersey Reporter, if he’s liking to coach his ex-rivals[Dimi Berbs and Brown].

“Mr. Berbs and Wes[Brown] are World Class talents and having them at Kerala Blasters is a priviledge, though our playing times were different and the rivalry would certainly be the supreme thing for him, like me.” Added David James.


It was in the seasons 2004-05 and 2005-06 when both David James and Wes Brown played in the Premier League together for their respective clubs – Manchester City and Manchester United. Though there’s no mention of the two in the Premier League history books, but would this word from David spark a fire among the Blasters’ space?
