JSW BFC gears up to face Gokulam Kerala FC today
Bhubaneswar: Hero Indian Super League finalists JSW Bengaluru FC are now up for the 'challenge' of the Hero Super Cup 2018 as the Blues are gearing up to face 'Giant-Killers' Gokulam Kerala FC in the Round of 16 at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar on Sunday (April 1, 2018).
Although the Spanish coach stated that his boys are ready for the challenge, he iterated that they're not under any pressure.
"There isn't much pressure, it's a challenge. We've put a lot of energy into the ISL and we had a good season. It was a shame not to win the title, but I think we showed how strong and consistent we can be",
Roca said. Meanwhile, he mentioned that after the Indian Super League silverware eluded them narrowly, it's another chance to wrap up the season with a laurel and they're up for the challenge.
"It's always difficult to get back from a final and renew your hopes to win a title, but this is a big opportunity to win silverware and we'll be doing our best out there."
Meanwhile, his team had clinched the Federation Cup last season from Odisha and the coach vented that they would like to repeat the feat once again.
"We won the Federation Cup last time, so it's on our mind to win this title again", Roca added.
