Moments after winning his first I-League title as a Coach, Aizawl FC head coach Khalid Jamil said he was happy that the Team has been able to finish the job!
“At the half-time I just told the boys that you won’t get another such 45 minutes in your life. We knew we were 45 minutes away from being the Champion. We had to be extra special in the second half,” he said at the post-match Press Conference.
“It is not just about me or any individual,” he stressed mentioning that it has all been about “teamwork”.
“It is about the boys. They played continuously and played well. They deserve the credit,” he opined.
“This is my biggest victory ever,” Jamil pronounced. “I always wanted to win the I-League. Every time at the start of the season I used to tell myself that ‘this year I should win it.’ I had to wait. And today we have won,” he added.
Meanwhile, his rival coach Thangboi Singto of Shillong Lajong FC congratulated Aizawl FC on the victory. “They were consistent all throughout. They are the deserving Champions!” Singto said.
