Chennaiyin FC are keen to put in a strong performance this time around in the India Super League (ISL) after an average display last year.
The club have begun their pre-season preparations on Monday under the watchful eyes of coach John Gregory.
The Blues will undergo pre-season training for ten days or so in Chennai.
