Mumbai, Oct 21 (IANS) Delhi Dynamos FC marquee-player-cum-manager Roberto Carlos congratulated Mumbai City FC for their first win of Indian Super League (ISL) second edition, adding that the home side had the right motivation and attitude on the field which the visitors lacked.
After a flop show in his ISL debut, forward Sunil Chhetri came back with a power packed performance as he netted a brilliant brace to steer Mumbai to 2-0 win over Dynamos FC at the D.Y. Patil Stadium here on Wednesday.
Chhetri opened the scoring in the 13th minute itself and got his second in the 74th minute to power Mumbai to their first win of the edition.
“Mumbai were deserving winners today. They played better football. The motivation and attitude they had, Delhi didn’t have that. It was a tough game for Mumbai as they didn’t win earlier and they delivered today. I congratulate Mumbai for the win,” Carlos said at the post-match press conference here.
“I take all responsibility for the loss of my team. Now we have a week’s time and break for our next game. When we win, we do not look at things we are making mistakes. But now we have to sit and find out our mistakes and correct them,” he said.
The Brazilian legend said he is not someone who will criticise his players, but will solve the problem with his boys and not publicly.
“We want to be on the top four of the table and we will aim for that. It is hard that things didn’t turn our way today. I will never criticise my players, I will tell them what went wrong for them in the dressing room and not in front of others. I will solve the problem with them and not here,” Carlos said.
