They have changed their head coach, there are a lot of new faces in the team as well but the result didn’t change for the two-time champions as the Kolkata based outfit lost to Kerala Blasters 2-0 in their opening game of Indian Super League Season 5 at the Salt Lake Stadium.

ATK Head Coach Steve Coppell still doesn’t know about what would the right combination for his team. He also came with some weird statements as he said, “The team is still not ready. They failed to cope up with the heat and humidity. Not only that my players have also failed to control the ball.”

Balwant played as a striker in his former club Mohun Bagan but today he was used as a left winger. Former Bagan coach and ATK assistant coach Sanjoy Sen said, “He played as a right winger in Mumbai City FC. There isn’t much difference between left winger and right winger. We failed to grow the understanding between the players and that is the reason why we lost the game. ”

Steve further added that, “We have to work on the set pieces movement.”
