Edu Garcia: Our last challenge is to be in the top six

ATK are slated to host Delhi Dynamos FC in the final match of the Hero Indian Super League (Hero ISL) 2018-19 at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan in Kolkata on Sunday. A win in the match will help ATK reclaim the sixth spot in the table and ensure them automatic qualification for the Hero Super Cup.

Before the match, caught up with ATK's Edu Garcia for an exclusive chat. Here are the excerpts.

How has your experience been playing for ATK?

My experience here has been good. When I came here, I knew it would be a difficult challenge for me because I came here without playing in the pre-season and I had to help the team get their goals. They have made my experience here pretty good.

How would you rate your performance this season?

Now, we are not very happy because we cannot play in the semi-finals. That's why I came here so that I can play in the semi-finals but now our last challenge is to be in the top six. So, we have to win the last match at home and we will try.

Is there any added pressure for a win against Delhi Dynamos FC?

We are playing to be in the top six of the Hero ISL standings. We want to win our last home match for us and for our supporters. I think it is a good challenge for us.

On playing against Delhi Dynamos FC.

Delhi Dynamos FC are a very good team. I know some of the players who are playing there and it won't be an issue for us, but it will be a hard match.
