Never lost confidence: Bengaluru FC’s Marco Pezzaiuoli after ending winless streak
Bengaluru FC head coach Marco Pezzaiuoli says he has never lost confidence in his side’s abilities despite a seven-game losing streak in the Indian Super League (ISL) that ended in a win 4-2 over Chennaiyin FC at Tilak Maidan Stadium in Vasco, Goa on Thursday. The Blues struck twice in each half to claim only their second win of the ISL season.
“We were confident all the time. I don’t think we played badly during this spell. The worst game we played was against ATK Mohun Bagan in terms of tactics and it was a 3-3 draw. I think that if you win you feel better. Now we can enjoy the new year better. The team played well from the first game. Sometimes we had bad luck. That’s all, “said Marco Pezzaiuoli during a post-match press conference according to the ISL website. “We changed the lineup from four to three at the back. We were down 1-0 and I wanted to win the game, so I put in an extra attacking player. And then we went up 2-1 and that was it. a good sign. But at half-time the opponent also changed tactics and we struggled in the preparation. Then I again changed to four at the back and it was easy and c ‘that’s why we won the game, ”he added.
The head coach further said he was hopeful Sunil Chettri could play more games from 2022. “I hope so. He’s one of our team members who has a lot of quality. Especially in the last ten days he’s been training really well. He was pushing a lot to be a full member but I decided not to. But he came in and made a good impact for the Udanta’s goal and that is its quality, ”said the head coach.
“I think he had 1-2 chances to provide the last pass better. Maybe he’s too much of a team player. He tried to pass to Cleiton when he could finish himself. he is a team player and even in training he pushes the team, ”he added. (ANI)
