Kolkata, Dec 5 – East Bengal FC head coach Carles Cuadrat was delighted with his team’s efforts in the last few weeks as they put that hard work to practice in a 5-0 win over NorthEast
United FC here on Monday night.
It was the Red and Gold brigade’s biggest win in ISL and was achieved thanks to a brace each from Cleiton Silva and Nandhakumar Sekar and a goal from Borja Herrera.
Cuadrat was happy to see his team enjoy some luck as they ran out emphatic winners, a result he feels should give his players much-needed confidence.
“We changed our luck with a lot of work,” the Spaniard said after the game.
“We kept going, we kept trying and it was a game where we scored the chances that we had. The opponent team was attacking so we had more space. The opposition team even missed a penalty and we got a clean sheet. We were a little bit fortunate, but it’s football,” he said.
“Sometimes the luck doesn’t help and today everything worked for us. All the goals were nice. So, the work we did in the training ground paid off and I’m happy that the players got confidence,” Cuadrat continued.
The Spaniard felt his team took advantage of the advantages they enjoyed during the game which resulted in such a big result in his team’s favour.
“Borja is a creative player. We have to take advantage of the players that we have and try to make a difference,” he said.
“We were fortunate that they were missing Bemammer who does a lot of work in midfield. He wins the majority of their duels and we took advantage of his absence,” Cuadrat added.
