Kerala Blasters FC new signing Victor Mongil has opined that head coach Ivan Vukoanovic has made every player at the club believe in his methods. The Tuskers had a successful campaign in the previous season as they made it to the final of the Hero Indian Super League but could not cross the final hurdle against Hyderabad FC.
Vukomanovic had played a key role in the team’s success after they had finished the league stage at the fourth position in the standings by winning nine of their 20 matches. Kerala Blasters FC defeated ATK Mohun Bagan in the semifinal but lost in the final on penalties.
Meanwhile, Victor Mongil had won his maiden ISL title with ATK FC in 2019-20 and he will be looking to win his second with Kerala Blasters FC.
“It would be wonderful to be able to win my second title in ISL, but if on top of that we can add that it is with Kerala Blasters, with the number of fans that the club has, and being able to make history with the club, it is all the incentive that any player needs to really be here,” Mongil told Sportskeeda.com in an interview.
Mongil showered praise on Ivan Vukomanovic as the club’s gaffer was able to get the best out of his players in the previous season.
“I think that with his style and way of leading the team, he has made everyone totally believe in him and have that faith in him. The most important thing for a coach or technical staff is to make a team believe in the methodology, work and style. of the coach and he has achieved it,” he said.
“He is a coach who was a footballer who understands the player in every aspect that happens and that is also important. I’m glad you want me to be here to help achieve goals,” added Mongil.
Mongil believes one of the key factors, which played a key role in Kerala Blasters FC’s success in the previous season was the presence of talented Indian players.
“One of the key successes of the previous season was that the Indian players from Kerala also showed that much more talent can still be squeezed out here, and that we can all be an important part of achieving this goal since in the long term it would be a great success for club and country,” the Spaniard said.
