Odisha FC head coach Josep Gombau revealed that they want to win as many trophies as possible ahead of the new Hero Indian Super League season. He hopes the team can put their best foot forward and aim to win all the trophies available this season. Gombau has been joined this season by Clifford Miranda and has been looking at developments on and off the pitch.
“I’m so happy to be here and grateful to the management team for having faith in me. This year is going to be special as we’re back in Odisha after two seasons. I’ve seen many changes here [at Odisha FC], the facilities are much better. The plan is to make a strong team, and to be proud of the club,” Odisha FC head coach Josep Gombau said. “Yes, of course. This is a new start, a new project, and we will look into all details – small as well as big, to make this team grow. We have six new foreign players, three new Indian players, and three new developmental players who make up half of the squad. And we’re all working together to bring this team in shape, to bring our best game on the pitch before the start of the Hero ISL season with the challenge to reach the semi-finals and win the league.”
“We have young players who are good, we are working with them, finding their best traits. We have young players like Shubham, Narender [Gehlot], Isaak [Chaakchuak], Thoiba Singh, and a lot more. We have a lot of players coming from the reserve team but by doing the training sessions in the right manner during the season, they can jump into the first team. I like to play with young players, so, if they have the potential, they are ready to play in the playing XI,” he added.
