The former Wigan manager said that the possibility in the Indian players is immense.

Chennaiyin FC trainer Owen Coyle said that his staff will take the area on Tuesday to win against NorthEast United and not seem to unwind they have already booked their place at the play-offs.

While he did mention he would rotate his squad given three players specifically, Lucian Goian, Nerijus Valskis and Rafael Crivellaro, are merely a booking away from a suspension. He heaped praise on Deepak Tangri, the prior Indian Arrows participant, and said he would go onto be a leading player in the years to come.

“First of all, we would like to win the match. We’ve got three boys on three yellow cards. It’ll be really naive to put them on and have a risk. So those players will be rested. And those players that take the pitch tomorrow are completely deserving. Karanjit (Singh) will perform tomorrow. Vishal (Kaith) has been one of the best keepers in the league since Karanjit has been pushing him every day in training. I’ve got my faith in him.

“Since the team is playing so well I had to keep continuity in selection. Young players, excellent players like Deepak will find a chance to demonstrate their quality. They’ve a terrific future ahead of them,” said Coyle.

The prior Bolton manager opined that the young Indian players are getting better with every day and that using more games scheduled for another edition of this Indian Super League (ISL), the chances for them to make a mark would also grow.

“I am really delighted with the Indian players in my group. These players are honest and hard working. The longer we can spend with those players, they’ll get better. I see the possibility in India is vast. Most teams have really good foreign players but the Indian players in most of the teams are really great. The younger ones are getting really better. Hopefully, there’ll be many more games next season and we get to spend more time together,” he concluded.

Chennaiyin FC had five points from six games when Coyle took over the reins and ever since that time, the team has played and transformed a fun brand of football.

“I don’t know the secrets behind the transformation. But after coming in we had to find a formula to win matches. 1 point per game wouldn’t have been enough. The players are terrific. They’ve a strong mentality. It’s never down to a single individual. Many things will need to connect.

“But what we did do is we assessed the quality of the players and discovered a winning formula (accordingly). Winning games is great but the way we’re winning them is much more pleasing. It reveals character and desire. Taking 19 points out of the previous 21 is extraordinary. Now we must see the job through,” he said.

Coyle was requested on which team are his preferred option to confront from the play-offs — FC Goa or ATK.

“Ultimately, you need to beat the top teams to acquire — make sure it FC Goa or ATK. They are quite good teams with ideal coaches. So, when that comes about we’ll think about it. But still, we would like to win tomorrow’s game,” he replied.
