Bartholomew Ogbeche proved to be the difference between both the sides as Mumbai City FC beat ATK Mohun Bagan with the aid of the solitary goal by Bartholomew Ogbeche. Mumbai City FC now stay on top of the table with 25 points.
“We knew the plans of ATK Mohun Bagan. We trained the last couple of days to play against a very good defensive team. I’m very happy with the performance of my team, especially in the first half. I think we created good opportunities for ourselves to take the advantage before the half time. And I’m very happy with the performance of my team.”
ATK Mohun Bagan are known for scoring goals in the second half of most of their games this season. On that note, Sergio Lobera said,
“It wasn’t a concern. Because it’s not just about the stats, it’s also about the situation of the game. Every game is different. We know ATK Mohun Bagan is a very dangerous team with very good strikers. Not just in second half, but in overall, we were balanced today, offensively and defensively, and I’m very happy with the work my team put forth.”
Sergio Lobera reasoned out that Bartholomew Ogbeche and the others were subbed because he needed a few fresh legs and he also acknowledged that his team has a strong bench.
Sergio Lobera also said he is wary of his team’s position as the league is a short league and if good performances aren’t kept up then the situations will changes very easily in a short span of time.
Sergio Lobera signed off by suggesting that they have their eyes set on the trophy.
