The brand new edition of the Indian Super League is set to kick off in Goa on the 20th of November. But the upcoming season will be a first of its kind in Indian football history as the pandemic situation has left the organizers with no other choice than to organize the tournament behind closed doors. Fans are an inevitable part of football. The passion they exhibit in the stands reflects on the players. But this season the players will have to live without the cheers and chants of their fans. The 33-year-old Centre Back thinks the game has already been negatively affected by the pandemic and it will be difficult without the fans but as a professional, he is ready for the challenge, Costa Nhamoinesu said.

“I think the games have already been negatively affected by the pandemic. Football is a beautiful game for people. Without the fans, it will never be the same. They make the atmosphere and the game interesting, It is a different sight and feeling. On the other side, we are professional players and have to adjust to the situation at hand. It is difficult to play in an empty stadium but we have to do what have to do.”

The Indian Super League’s primary aim is to develop and unearth the future stars of Indian football by giving them the opportunity to rub shoulders with experienced international stars. The League has been able to ameliorate Indian Football in a short span of 6 years. Indian players have improved leaps and bounds with the help of world-renowned coaches and players. Costa Nhamoinesu is looking forward to sharing his experiences with the Indian players and help the Kerala Blasters football club on and off the field. “I am thinking about sharing my experiences with the youngsters and I want to be able to help the club in any way I can, On and off the pitch”.

The Kerala Blasters haven’t made the Top 4 since 2016. Last year under Eelco Schattorie, The Kochi based outfit finished in 7th place with 19 points (20 points behind table-toppers FC Goa). In the upcoming edition, the Kerala Blasters will be led by I-League winning Tactician Kibu Vicuna. The club has undergone a structural change within itself and has made some amazing signings in the transfer window. Costa Nhamoinesu states that the approach of the club this time around is different and believes the club will perform better than last season in the upcoming edition. “The club has made a lot of structural changes within itself and the team. This shows that their approach will be different. For me, The disappointment of last season and the club wanting to do better this year are the main driving forces for this season”.

The Kerala Blasters have a very passionate fanbase. The atmosphere they create in Kochi is simply outstanding. Unfortunately, the club will miss the support of its 12th man this time around. Costa Nhamoinesu says the club will miss the Manjappada and the team will try its level best to bring success to them. The Sparta Prague legend had a message for all the fans of Kerala Blasters “We know that you have the team in your heart and that your support for the team is unconditional. So this season we will try to match your passion and transfer it to the field by giving our best in every game we play. Although you can’t join us at the stadium we are still together”.

IFTWC wishes Costa Nhamoinesu all the best for his debut season in the Indian Super League.
