FC GOA HEAD COACH ZICO on Monday said that the fracas involving Chennaiyin FC marquee player Elano after the closely contested Indian Super League (ISL) final on Sunday night, which eventually led to the footballer's subsequent arrest, could send a wrong signal to foreigners keen on playing in the league.
THE MUCH TOUTED Indian Super League (ISL) is good as a spectacle, but it does not benefit Indian football in any way, FC Goa chief coach and Brazilian legend Zico said on Monday.
BOUNCERS AND SECURITY PERSONNEL stationed at the Indian Super League (ISL) final venue manhandled FC Goa co-owner Shrinivas Dempo and did not allow the team's owners to meet the players after the final match on Sunday, the team's other part-owner Dattaraj Salgaocar said on Monday.
IT WASN'T a game where excuses could be made and second chances could be sought. It was the grand finale of the ISL 2015,
THE CELEBRATION OF WINNING their maiden ISL title turned sour for Chennaiyin FC when their marquee player, Elano Blumer, was arrested on charges of assaulting and abusing FC Goa co-owner Dattaraj Salgaocar.
FORTUNES ROSE AND FELL within one minute at Fatorda as two late goals saw Chennaiyin FC come back up from a 2-1 deficit to claim a 3-2 win over FC Goa to lift the ISL 2015 championship trophy.
A BATTLE OF nerve and grit saw FC Goa and Chennaiyin FC play out a high-tempered, physical first half that had everything in it but a goal in the ISL 2015 grand finale at Fatorda
THE ISL FINAL between FC Goa and Chennaiyin FC is going to be a neck-to-neck contest but we think FC Goa has a slight edge over their opponents.
WITH A BATTLE of two dynamic, mature teams, the ISL 2015 final between FC Goa and Chennaiyin FC promises not to disappoint as Fatorda prepares for an epic night of football.
FC GOA COACH Zico does not think that the home advantage will amount to much in the upcoming ISL final match against Chennaiyin FC, and the match is going to be a contest between equals.
