In fact, the Highlanders finished at third place in the 2020-21 season after winning eight of their 20 matches.
On the other hand, Michu revealed that Khalid Jamil has helped him a lot in rising through the ranks. Jamil had earlier become the first Indian head coach in the ISL.
“Khalid sir helped me a lot. Both in East Bengal and NorthEast he provided me the chance to prove myself. Also, he motivated me a lot to give out my best on the field.”
The 28-year-old had earlier played for East Bengal and he added he misses Kolkata football a lot because of the fans.
“I miss Kolkata a lot. I can still remember the Durand semi-final match between East Bengal and Gokulam Kerala FC. I will never forget the way the fans came all the way round to support us during that match. Also, I miss the Kolkata derby. It’s the biggest match in Indian football. It’s completely a different feeling and different emotion.”
