Mohun Bagan winger Liston Colaco revealed that he approaches every training session as if it were his last. Colaco prefers to keep himself grounded despite his phenomenal in last season’s Indian Super League. The Indian international scored eight goals while providing four assists for the Kolkata team. He scored a hattrick in the AFC Cup 2023 against Bashundhara Kings and took home the match ball. Colaco will need to shoulder the responsibility of goal-scoring along with captain Sunil Chhetri.

“It’s been with me ever since I scored the hat-trick in the AFC Cup. It’s just a reminder as to how grateful I am to my teammates for the goals – not just on that day — but in each and every match,” Mohun Bagan winger Liston Colaco said. “In football, we need to keep working together to achieve results. No one can ever feel as an individual that it’s all about him — as everything is of the team, for the team, and by the team.”

“You must be kidding (on fans labeling him as a ‘superstar’). I never ever think likewise. I am just another player in the team trying, and working hard to do my job,” he added. “Most importantly, I have just started my career as a professional player, and there is a long way to go. Never ever in my life will I consider me a superstar. My mantra in life is simple – keep my head down and feet on the ground, and continue working hard.”
