Mohun Bagan head coach Sanjoy Sen praises the persistence in defense showed by the new I-League entrants Chennai City FC in the last game. Despite the loss, Chennai City kept their basics intact and managed to get the lead on the visitors in the 52nd minute, though Jeje and Sony spoiled their party by coming from behind to clinch all three points.


"How did Real Madrid lose to some unknown team (Celta de Vigo)? This is football. Chennai played really well and they have also come to play. It's not about Bengaluru, East Bengal or Mohun Bagan winning all the time. Every team will get better from here on." Sen said when posed a question about the opposition.


Sony Norde’s penalty miss has been the highlight of the match. Even Sony came to be vocal about it and said it was agonizing. The Haitian International even though got a consolation from the coach, but it must have been difficult to believe for the kind of expectations Sony has set for himself.


"I told him at half-time that forget about the penalty. All big players miss penalties. I tried to take off some pressure off of him and he got the goal. That should give him a lot of confidence", Sen commented on star player Sony Norde.


Sen however was extremely fallen upon the young defender Bikramjit Singh, who got his first start of the season in lieu of a last minute injury to Anas Edathodika. "He was outstanding. For me, he is the man of the match."

Another player Sen praised was the new recruit Eduardo Ferreira, as he insisted that the young midfielder will gel better with time. “It needs time to understand and sync with the Mohun Bagan standards” he said closing the press conference.
