Khalid Jamil has now managed to get the better of coaches like Owen Coyle, Antonio Habas and Sergio Lobera…
Sergio Lobera’s Mumbai City have fallen just twice in the ongoing Indian Super League (ISL) so far and both the setbacks came against the unlikeliest of the oppositions – NorthEast United.
After the debacle in their season opener, the Islanders were on a 12-match unbeaten streak (nine wins and three draws) before facing NorthEast United on Saturday and thus, understandably the odds were in Mumbai’s favour. But Khalid Jamil’s side’s performance came as a rude surprise for the high-flying Mumbai side.
The Highlanders went toe-to-toe against the league leaders right from the off and managed to do something which no other side in the league had managed to do against Mumbai before this match. They scored twice within 10 minutes and took the game away from Lobera’s side.
