Bengaluru FC midfielder Suresh Singh Wangjam stated that the players need to continue persevering and maintain the dedication in the game to improve their results, as his team locks horns with Mumbai City FC in matchweek 7 of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the Mumbai Football Arena in Mumbai on Thursday.

Singh also revealed that he hasn’t been at his best and is unhappy with his performances in the season so far, and believes that his built-up confidence will soon reflect on the pitch with his performances.

The BFC midfield general addressed the media in the official pre-match press conference ahead of the Mumbai City FC clash.

Here are the excerpts from his press conference:

What’s the mood in the camp right now in terms of the mindset of the players?

Three defeats in a row is very difficult to digest, but the good thing about the dressing room is that the coaching and management staff are encouraging us a lot. Even the fans are backing us a lot so that we can come back. And as a team, we are encouraging each other so that we keep our chins up, and even in the training, I feel everyone is very eager to turn the corner.

How do you assess your performance at Bengaluru FC over the years?

Yeah, by my standards, I'm also not happy with my performance. I think I'm having a slow start, but at the same time, my teammates and even the coach spoke to me, and are helping me a lot. In every training session, I'm trying to improve. At the same time, I know what I'm capable of. I fully believe in myself on what I can do to give to the team.

Why do you think you’ve had a slow start to the season?

Maybe before the season began, I had an injury, I was out for a month. I don't know, maybe I missed some matches in the pre-season, but that's not an excuse, to be honest. I think I'll be back and I'm getting a lot of confidence from my teammates also. So, I think everything will be alright.

Is there something you’re specifically doing to sort of try to turn this around?

Yes. Even the coach spoke to me about doing what I’m good at, and I know what I'm good at because every day after the training, I keep a notebook just to analyse myself. And I think if I keep everything very short and simple, I think I'll be alright.
