The Spaniard shared his thoughts on his side’s third draw of the season.
Bengaluru FC played out a 0-0 draw against Jamshedpur FC at the JRD Tata Sports Complex to draw their third game in a row. It is bound to leave head coach Carles Cuadrat a tad disappointed at the fact of having just taken three points from the first three games.
The coach, though, praised the efforts of his players on the day saying, “I think we keep drawing games because we play against very good opponents, they also have good players and work well. Today it wasn’t very easy for us, both teams were hungry. But I’m happy with the tactics we played with and the way we stopped the opposition and created chances.”
Cuadrat maintained a “stick-to-the-process” approach but implied the importance of results saying, “We are working hard and playing well, but honestly in these three games we should have taken seven points. And if we were lucky at least five points.”
Bengaluru have struggled on the goal scoring front despite boasting arguably the best attack in the league with Chhetri and Udanta Singh among others. But Cuadrat wasn’t fazed by the lack of goals considering the attacking quality at his disposal.

He said, “We created chances and hopefully one day they will go in. We have the quality but we lost crucial players and with the budget this year that leaves us tight on buying players. It happens everywhere. You can take, for example, Real Madrid, who are struggling for scoring goals since Cristiano Ronaldo left. It is just about numbers. We are giving heart into it and are working hard.”
“We shouldn’t play with the pressure of victory and if we don’t the victory will come,” stated Carles Cuadrat.
Bengaluru will look to register their first win of the campaign when they face strugglers Chennaiyin FC next Sunday. Jamshedpur next travel to Kolkata to play close neighbours ATK on 9th November.
