“We played a competitive game. We knew what we were expecting from a brilliant side like Mumbai City. We followed the plan. The players followed the plan and did a fantastic job. I’m very pleased with all of them. This is just a start of serious season for NorthEast United. I’m happy but we need to keep improving at the same time.”

NorthEast United will be up against Kerala Blasters in their next match. Kerala Blasters have lost their first match against ATK Mohun Bagan. The former Ghana assistant coach feels Kerala Blasters will come back stronger. Here’s what he said,

“In the coming game against Kerala Blasters, it will be tougher than this one. We know our identity, we will try to do as best as we can. But no way we are the favourites. I saw the game last night, they have good principles of game. They are going to come stronger and they will be tough.

“It’s good to start with 3 points. But it’s not just that, even if the result wasn’t in our favor, you could see there was a clear pattern. We will be a team that will fight, never give up and that’s definitely what we have seen today”, Gerard Nus signed off.
