ATK Mohun Bagan new signing Brendan Hamill is optimistic about his side’s chances in the AFC Cup. He believes that they could become the first Indian team to win the competition if they work together. Hamill signed a two-year contract with the club and will be an integral part of the squad during the AFC Cup campaign. They have already signed Florentin Pogba, Ashique Kuruniyan, and Asish Rai.
“I think we need to get to work. The key to any success is working hard, and working smart. I know what it takes to do it being privileged enough to win the Champions League, so I know what the blueprint is,” ATK Mohun Bagan defender Brendan Hamill said. “But at the end of the day, it’s 11 against 11 for 90 minutes. But if we work hard, work smart and work together, there’s no reason why we can’t have a real crack at the AFC Cup.”
“I can’t wait. From what I’ve experienced so far, the Mariners fans seem very passionate. My social media accounts have been blown up with a huge amount of text messages, likes, and comments from all the supporters and I feel that passion,” he added. “I can’t wait to come over and play in front of all the loyal fans of the club. I’m actually very excited to come over because I’m feeling all the love on social media, so I can’t imagine what’s it going to be on the field when we score goals, win games, and hopefully create some joy for the fans,”
