Odisha FC has gotten off to a strong start in the 2022–23 season of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL), thanks in large part to the leadership of head coach Josep Gombau. The Bhubaneswar-based team has been successful so far, winning three of its first four matches while also suffering just one loss.
Gombau has not only given the players a new football identity, but he has also instilled in them a winning mentality. This is evident from the fact that in two of the team’s four games, they rallied and overcame deficits to win by three points. In addition, Gombau has brought a new football identity to the team.
Amrinder Singh, who is currently the team’s starting goalie and joined the squad during the most recent transfer window, is currently stationed in the Odisha FC goal, where he is both protecting the net and boosting the morale of the players as each minute passes.
The addition of Singh to the team has been a significant boost for the group as a whole because of his notoriety as well as his career with the Indian men’s national team and in the Hero Indian Super League. Singh is a great player who is known for how well he keeps the ball out of the goal.
ISL 2022-23: According to Singh, the Club Does Not Believe In Giving Up
This year’s squad is one of our strongest ever. Every member of the team has the distinct impression that they are a part of a close-knit family due to the beautiful, positive vibe that permeates the entire organisation. According to Singh, who was speaking to Odisha FC TV, all of the players, both international and domestic, are willing to put in a lot of effort during practise.
According to Singh, the club does not believe in giving up, as was demonstrated by their triumphs over Mumbai City FC and Jamshedpur FC, in which they came from behind to win. In both of those matches, the team was able to come out on top. Singh, who talked about the wins against Jamshedpur FC and Mumbai City FC, said that these wins show that the club doesn’t believe in giving up, and that’s true.
He made the following statement: “There is a sense of camaraderie in the team, and the unity of the team is a positive indicator, and it will be advantageous for us.”
After Gombau’s team has won both of their home games this season, Singh is already in love with the stadium, the crowd, the field, and the recently renovated infrastructure of the Kalinga stadium. All of these things make up the Kalinga stadium.
“It blows my mind in a big way. I went to the stadium, and the effort that was put forth there was really impressive to me. He went on to say that everything, including the field and the locker room, had been finished to the highest possible standard.
The 29-Year-Old Goalkeeper Has Already Made Seven Saves
I always tell the kids to be responsible and take charge. The custodian said, “As a team, we are one; we must play as one (unit) and adhere to the guidelines established by the coach. We always acknowledge the efforts of the team’s foreign players while also correcting their errors, and this goes for me as well. We always tell the kids to be responsible and take charge.
The 29-year-old goalkeeper has already made seven saves, kept a clean sheet, and contributed an outstanding assist during the course of his first four games with the team. Gombau’s offensive style of play has been beneficial to the team in the back, but so has Amrinder Singh, Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, and Laxmikant Kattimani, amongst others, who all have a chance to be serious contenders for the Golden Glove this year. Amrinder Singh has helped the team in the back just as much as Gombau.
If I try something a few times, I’ll get better at it and won’t make the same mistake twice, so it doesn’t matter if I mess up. The coach said that even if you make a mistake in the first minute of the game, you still have 90 minutes to improve and support the squad.
“I always have a strong drive to win every game. Any person can make mistakes, but what I value most is the ability to learn from them and avoid repeating them.
