We are looking up to BFC as a role model - Raja


The Chennai boss is looking forward to a tough game against the Blues...

Newcomers Chennai City managed a goalless draw at home to fellow newboys Minerva Punjab on the opening weekend. Now, they face what could be their toughest test all season in a away trip to reigning champions Bengaluru FC in the Deccan Derby.

Coached by Robin Charles Raja, Chennai bolstered their lineup by adding players having experience in Hero I-League – Karanjit Singh, Debabrata Roy, and Denson Devadas, foreigners Haroon Amiri and Echezona, and local boys Dharmaraj Ravanan and Dhanpal Ganesh.

Charles is hopeful for the match against the champions, “We have started on a positive note, our first game was a draw and we surely want to do well in the other matches.”

With not enough pre-season and late signings, they have a task cut out.

Chennai City FC must be seeking inspiration from the other big club from south. ”BFC maybe a different club but they too are from the same zone. Heard a lot about BFC. We are looking up to BFC as a role model, we’re learning, and hopefully we’ll catch up with them in coming days.”

Raja further added, “We’ll give a tough time to Bengaluru FC on Saturday and we’ll do well as a team.”
