Bhubaneswar : ATK begin their 2019 Hero Super Cup campaign when they take on Hero I-League side Real Kashmir FC at the Kalinga Stadium here on Monday. The Kolkata-based side ATK come into this tournament on the back of a sixth-place finish in the 2018-19 Indian Super League (ISL) , while Real Kashmir impressed many with their performances during their debut I-League campaign.

At the pre-match press conference, head coach of ATK, Steve Coppell expressed “I have seen quite a few of Real Kashmir games on TV and they are a team that deserve and demand respect. They have some really good players and they have a particular style which has produced a lot of goals. Hopefully it will be a really good game.”

Continuing on the same note, Coppell also lauded his counterpart David Robertson for the work he has put in as head coach: “You judge people on what they do and not what they have done. Finishing third in the I-League in their debut season is a great achievement. They play very attractive football and he has done a great job. We know we are in for a tough game tomorrow and may the best team win.”

From Real Kashmir FC’s end, head coach, David Robertson picking out the differences between the I-League and Super Cup. “There is really a big difference and obviously the level of playing against, ISL is a step up. So, they’ve got a budget lot more than ours. Maybe their top foreign players are more than our overall budget. So, we know it is going to be a tough game. But like every game this season, we’ve been underdogs and we’ve just gone and enjoyed the first season in the I-League, and the step up. Tomorrow is another little bit of history for the club as well. First time in the Super Cup. So, it’s been a fantastic couple of years here,” he said. .
