Former India cricket captain Sourav Ganguly and co-owner of Indian Super League side ATK, hopes the team will rise afresh after a forgettable last season. The two-time champions looked completely out of sorts in the last season. They finishing a dismal ninth. Its worst-ever performance since the inception of the league.
This season ATK have made their intentions clear roping in Steve Coppell. Steve Coppellhad guided Kerala Blasters to a runners-up finish in his first season. Steve Coppell took debutants Jamshedpur FC to a creditable fifth place in the previous edition.
“To all, this is the new film of the season, hopefully it will bring us luck and we will have a good year. Our record at Hero ISL is phenomenal, yes it wasn’t a great last year but we will surely turn it around this time,” Ganguly said on the sidelines of a promotional shoot.
Season five of ISL will kick off with ATK taking on Kerala Blasters FC on September 29 at the Saltlake Stadium.
