Gokulam Kerala FC coach Bino George has said that the Kozhikode-based I-League team will bounce back after their shock defeat against East Bengal FC in Kolkata. The team has arrived here after the away match and face Real Kashmir FC at home in their next Hero I-League match on December 15.
“We did some costly mistakes in the first half of the match. Before the players could recoup, we were down by two goals. However, the boys fought well. We had a possession of 60 percent and if not about some unfortunate decisions by the referee, we could have won the match,” he said.
Bino believes that GKFC should have won a penalty when Sabah was brought down by East Bengal goalie. “It is unfortunate. But there is no point in complaining. We will look into the mistakes and try to correct it,” he said.
Bino said that the club is in look out for foreign strikers after the departure. “We need to bolster attack and there should be a quality striker upfront. We are trying to sign a foreigner before Real Kashmir match,” the coach said.
The coach also praised Christian Sabah for his debut goal. “He played really well. But this is only a glimmer of his abilities. Fans are yet to see his abilities. He is slowly adapting to the league,” he said.
