Indian Super League got their new title holder this year in Bengaluru Football Club. Bengaluru FC defeated Goa FC by 1-0 on Sunday in the final match for the title. The Bengaluru FC captain Sunil Chhetri tagged the win as extraordinarily special for him. He marked the win at number two right after the AFC Cup 2016 final in Doha. AFC Cup 2016 was the first special win for the captain.
Sunil is on cloud nine after winning the title. Last year, the team was just left just one step behind the title by losing the final. No one in the team spoke about the loss but they all knew that one day they will be given the chance to showcase their real strengths.
After the win, Sunil happily claimed, “You know what Asia, we are back.”
Last season Bengaluru lost the title to Chennaiyin FC. Although there were not many changes in the squad from the last year but appointing Carles Cuadrat as the manager helped the team for better. Though Carles and the previous manager share the same mentalities the slight difference in the strategies helped the team to cross the line.
Bengaluru FC now has a good chance to make it to the group stage of 2020 AFC Cup with this win.
