Mumbai City FC midfielder Vinit Rai believes that the competition for places within the squad made him a better player. The team has got quality all around the pitch with the likes of Ahmed Jahouh, Alberto Noguera, Apuia (Lalengmawia Ralte), and Rowllin Borges. Although Rai was a starter for Odisha FC, Rai has become an integral part of the plans under Des Buckingham.
“I was a key member of the Odisha side, but I wanted a new challenge and Mumbai City FC are one of the top clubs in the country. There is so much competition for my spot at the Islanders, I have to fight to get my place in the team,” Mumbai City FC midfielder Vinit Rai said. “That will make me a better player, there will not be a single day where I will be low in concentration or intensity. The real competition is with me to improve my game and always try to be the best in the game whenever I get a chance.”
“I look up to him whenever he is on the pitch and I try to learn a lot from him. The way he keeps calm and composed and the way he plays, I try to implement those things in training and during matches. He is like an idol to me in this league,” he added. “I am very glad that I was a part of the MCFC family in the AFC Champions League, where we made history and won games. The important thing was that we played well and were confident. We could have earned some more points, but we could not this time. I think we are all proud of what we were able to achieve though,” added Rai on their AFC Champions League journey.”
