Robbie Fowler satisfied of East Bengal’s performance against Chennaiyin


A thriller of a contest between SC East Bengal and Chennaiyin FC came to an end with two goals a piece as both the sides shared the spoils tonight. LZ Chhangte and Rahim Ali scored for the away side and Matti Steinmann scored a brace to save SC East Bengal from drowning tonight.

Robbie Fowler seemed to be satisfied with his side’s performance. He said,

“I think, if you had noticed the way we played in the first half, there are lots of things to be satisfied about. As a manager, you’ll always want to go out there to get the three points and I’ll always do that. But the way we played today, it’s important that we didn’t lose. Our lads showed a lot of fight and it’s a game that we didn’t deserve to lose. So there are lots of positives.

“I can never fault them for their efforts and their attitude, we were quite dynamic on the field and in the second half we upped the attitude, desire and the temperament of the game.”

Robbie Fowler feels his defensive line is a bit hesitant in putting their bodies onto the firsr tackles, in general all over the pitch. He reckons that’s one aspect to improve overall. He also reckoned that the team is getting fitter and better as the season’s been proceeding.

Robbie Fowler on Matti Steinmann, the defensive midfielder, scoring a brace, helping his team from not drowning, said,

“He’s a good player, and when you spot a good player like him, you will kind of want to give him a free role. But he’s definitely got to learn to defend as well. But today he popped up with a brace and helped the team, two set-pieces. It values him a lot. He is one of the ones who fights till the very end.

“We work on a lots of teams, trying to identify their strengths and their weaknesses. And if their weakness is our strength then, of course, we’re gonna use it against them.”

Robbie Fowler continued,

“I’m not under pressure, I know what we need to do. Regardless of what people think, we were built for the I-League but we deserve the credit to have put up a lot of fight. Obviously we want to win games, we’re not settling for anything less. We’ve shown that we’re not that bad a team. We only lost one in the last four games, we have the youngest player in the ISL, Tomba, featuring for us. Why has no one mentioned that yet? We’ll definitely get the results we want in the near future and the management is backing me a one hundred per cent”, Robbie Fowler signed off.
