18 year old Anirudh Thapa speaks his heart on the recently completed season for Chennaiyin FC

IN A VIDEO PUBLISHED ON SOCIAL MEDIA, Chennaiyin FC player Anirudh Thapa answered a few questions on his experience of the Indian Super League.

Anirudh Thapa is one of CFC's developmental U-23 players in the squad. Hailing from Uttarakhand, he has representated and captained Indian National Under-19 Team. He made his debut for the Chennaiyin FC in the last game of the season and was pretty impressive.

Reporter: Difficult evening for y'all. What are your thoughts on the match?
Anirudh: Yes it was great match. It was an away game and the last game [of the season]. We wanted to win but we didn't but no problem. It's a game sometimes we lose, sometimes we win.

 Anirudh was part the India side that defeated hosts Nepal to win the U-16 SAFF in 2013.

Reporter: Chennaiyin scored 3 goals in the first half. Was the team looking to score more or try to play more defensively in the second half?
Anirudh: We were trying to win the game and score more goals not play defensive but [unfortunately] we conceded

He also captained and won the AIFF Elite Academy U19 I-league in the 2015-2016 season.

Reporter: This is the end of the season, What are the positives that you can take?
Anirudh: I'm young and was so excited to play my first game with seniors I learnt a lot.It was one of the best experience of my lifetime.

Thapa was among the three U-19 national team players who received training with French club side FC Metz this year. 

Reporter: Any favourites to win the ISL?
Anirudh: All teams are playing well. All top teams are playing well. I cannot say which team will win but Delhi are looking a strong side.
