The Chennaiyin FC boss expects his players to put up a strong performance this weekend as they search for their second win this season…
Chennaiyin FC have scored just a single goal in their last four Indian Super League (ISL) outings and coach Csaba László has urged his players to start scoring more often in training as that would eventually translate to on field as well.
The Marina Machans have just a single win under their belt which came on matchday one against Jamshedpur FC. Of the three goals they have scored, one was a penalty.
“We want to use our strengths. We need to score goals. We must be more focused. We should not be aggressive but focused when we get chances to score. We also have to stay compact , organised and stop Goa and we can lead the team to a win.
“If you don’t score, you don’t win .I think I don’t want to push the responsibility on the players. This is also a little bit to do with your own confidence and may be because our preparation was not long. If you are out of football for six months and then come back and hit the ground running, it is not easy. So, I don’t want to blame my players. But we must be focused and take confidence. I want us to start scoring more goals even in training. We need to do that more and that confidence will come,” explained László.
He however, hopes that his team will be amongst goals soon as it’s just a matter of time before they begin to convert their chances.
“In the game, of course, there is more pressure and responsibility. It is not easy to just come in after six months and start scoring. We have tried to resolve this and we are working on it. But sometimes, it takes time. Maybe sometimes, we will win with a lot of goals and the ice will be broken,” he said.
