Tell us something about your days at SAI Guwahati.
It was a great learning experience for me at SAI where we trained very well. I got a chance to play the youth I League for SAI and they sent us to tiol camps regularly as well. It was a great exposure and helped me grow.
How is your equation with present coach Alexandre Guimarães?
He’s a great coach and a wonderful human being too. His efforts in improving the players are immense. For a young player like myself, there is an abundance of knowledge that I can learn from him and I consider myself lucky to have such a good figure to learn from so early in my career.
Have you set any goal for this season?
For my team, the only target is to win. If I can chip in with some goals and contribute to it, nothing else would make me happy. I will keep giving my 100% on the training pitch and in the games whenever called upon.
What is your ultimate football goal?
Career goals? It’s to play for the senior Indian tiol Team. I feel that is every footballer’s dream to represent his country and me too have same dream.
