Chennaiyin FC began the Indian Super League 2021-22 in Goa on a strong note, picking up eight points from its first four matches, but has gone off the boil recently. Bozidar Bandovic-coached Chennaiyin, which is eighth on the table with 19 points from 15 fixtures, will make it to the play-offs only if something extraordinary happens in the remainder of the season. CFC, a club that clinched its two ISL titles in a span of three years (2015 & 2017-18), is set to miss out on the top-four for a second successive season. Chennaiyin had finished eighth in the standings (with 20 points from as many matches) under ex-head coach Csaba Laszlo in ISL 7 in Goa. With the team and the fans enduring some of the most painful days in the club’s history, Bandovic on Tuesday spoke at length about what has gone wrong so far in the ongoing season, the upcoming assignment against FC Goa (at the Tilak Maidan in Vasco on Wednesday) and what needs to be done to bring back the glory days. Interestingly, the Montenegrin manager talked extensively about the future although his current CFC contract runs only until March 30 (end of the season).
