Delhi Dynamos were dealt a huge blow by Mumbai City in their Indian Super League (ISL) match at the Mumbai Football Arena on Friday. The result marked Delhi's sixth straight defeat of the season, having played seven games.
In a game that saw Sehnaj Singh and Matias Mirabaje earn early baths, Delhi were 0-2 down by the time the referee blew his whistle for the break. Head coach Miguel Portugal brought on Lallianzuala Chhangte in the 53rd minute and the man of the match from Delhi's first game tried to put pressure on the Mumbai defence and bring the visitors back into the game.
Seeing Chhangte's display after coming on as a substitute in the second half, a frustrated Dynamos director Rohan Sharma tweeted, "It's almost like having Chhangte play in the starting XI makes a f**king difference [sic]".
This could either be a signal of discontent at the coach's team selection which had Lallianzuala Chhangte on the bench for the game against Mumbai City. Or it could have a sarcastic undertone, indicating a lack of squad strength. Replying to one of the user's comments under his tweet, Rohan Sharma said that he is looking to add a goalkeeper to the squad.
The Dynamos management has plenty to think about, with the team languishing at the bottom of the table with just three points from seven games. Delhi will now travel to Chennai to take on Chennaiyin FC on January 7, 2018.
