Leon McSweeney: Bengaluru FC made life tough for us

Leicester City FC academy head coach Leon McSweeney admitted that Bengaluru FC made life tough for them after scoring three goals in seven minutes in the Next Gen Cup. Leicester City was already six up before the quickfire goals with the ISL club earning praise from the Premier League delegates in the stands. The Leicester City manager admitted that they were put under pressure during the game.

“Bengaluru made life very tough for us with their energy and intensity. It caused a lot of problems, particularly in the second half. I think they can be very proud of what they showed. And certainly, if we didn’t have the cushion, we would have been a lot more nervous at the end,” Leon McSweeney said about Bengaluru FC. “I think just the experience in different cultures in terms of football, physicality, the speed of the game, the intensity, and the pressing in the different facets of the game. And particularly for all, that’s as well it works both ways. Our guys are experiencing a different cultural style of football against different opposition and having to deal with that and how they can cope because they wouldn’t ordinarily get this type of test if they stay in this country. Having that cultural crossover is important.”

“After the game, I could hear the boys saying we could have won the game. So this is what they need to understand,” Naushad Moosa said. “I felt that they had that fear of playing against Leicester. So you could see, everyone was down. When they were going for the tackle, they were not giving their hundred percent. In the second half, the team was totally different in the way we were going at them. So, this is what they will have to learn and this is a very good learning moment.”
