Lallianzuala Chhangte believes joining Mumbai City FC on a permanent deal was a step in the right direction for his career. Chhangte was on loan at the club for the second half of the season and made his move permanent by signing a three-year deal at the club. Mumbai FC endured a difficult season in the Hero Indian Super League.
“It is the best choice for my future development. They are linked with the City Football Group so that can help me become a better player. Who knows, there might be a possibility to play outside India if I perform well,” Mumbai City FC winger Lallianzuala Chhangte said. “They are serious about football, not just wanting to compete in India. We saw that in the Asian Champions League, we weren’t just participating there, we were performing. Mumbai City has a plan which is a very good thing for a player.”
“It was a great experience for the whole team, not just for me. I feel very blessed. We are not just representing Mumbai City but the whole country,” he added. “We were there in the ACL the whole time. We could have done better but every time we played a match we made it so difficult for the opponents. They are all strong teams, we knew that, but we were competing. Some of those players later told us that we are a very hard team to beat. That tells us that we are improving a lot. If we work hard then soon we will be able to compete consistently in Asia.”
