ISL Is A Different Competition: Antonio Habas Warns I-League Winning Kibu Vicuna

Goa: ATK Mohun Bagan FC will begin their campaign in the 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL) season with a blockbuster clash against Kerala Blasters on Friday in Goa.

Mohun Bagan, who merged with former ISL champions ATK this season to form the new entity ATK Mohun Bagan will be facing coach Kibu Vicuna in the season opener, a coach who had guided Mohun Bagan to their fifth I-League title last season.

However, Kerala Blasters coach Antonio Habas took a dig at his opposite number Vicuna, reminding him that although the latter has won the I-League with Mohun Bagan, but ISL is a different ball game altogether.

“Kibu Vicuna did good work in Mohun Bagan. But this year it is a different competition and different season. I have the utmost respect for him but on Friday we will try to get three points as we work every day for that,” stated the two-time ISL winner.

The Mariners face Kerala Blasters and their arch-rivals East Bengal in their first two matches of the season. But Habas is not concerned that his boys have to lock horns against two formidable opponents at the start.

“It is a competition and we have to play all the teams at some point in time. For me, there is no difference. It is the same.”

The Habas-coached side conceded only 19 goals in 21 matches during their triumphant campaign last season and with the addition of Tiri and Jhingan, their defence will be the one to watch out for.
