The young Mumbai FC coach shared with Goal.com just how his team will react after they have failed to register a single point in the league so far...Mumbai FC are going through some turbulent times now. The club, with which former player and present coach Khalid Jamil, has done wonders with limited resources lies at the foot of the I-League table without a single point. It is a huge amount of pressure for any manager who finds his club in such a precarious situation. For someone as young as Jamil such pressure is expected to be manifold.
In stark contrast, the 35-year old coach spoke to Goal.com about his club's situation and maintained that the elusive win will come. "We will continue to work hard to get the points. We will fightback," said Jamil with conviction. "We have played well so far. The win will come," he added.
The match officials have been in the spotlight both in India and around the globe. Khalid Jamil's side were on the wrong end of some questionable decisions during their game against Churchill Brothers and in the Maharashtra derby match against Pune FC.
"Refereeing mistakes are part of the game. It happens to all the clubs. We just have to accept the decision and move on," said the former Mumbai FC player.

When quizzed about the rumours of non-payment of dues to some players, Khalid clarified that the wage issues came from players who had played less number of games and those that were out to injury. "The issue has been settled. All players have received their share of the wages," added Jamil.
Mumbai FC face Ekendra Singh's Sporting Clube de Goa at home this week. Jamil revealed that the team had no injury concerns and that everybody was available for selection.
