David Platt: 'Eugeneson's got enviable balance and awareness'

David Platt has revealed he admires the talented Eugeneson Lyngdoh, whilst also stating he is preparing for the challenge of Mumbai City in the best possible way.

David Platt, the former Manchester City assistant coach who is now in charge of the reins at Indian Super League (ISL) franchise FC Pune City, has revealed his admiration for the Deccan side's record buy Eugeneson Lyngdoh calling him a 'bright boy.'

In a facebook post on the team's official page, the coach also revealed that Diego Coletto has not been training due to an injury and will be given a thorough run through once back in the Oxford of the East, Pune. 

"One of the things I enjoy as a coach is working with players on an individual basis and that's what I did with Eugeneson today. Eugeneson has had a very busy schedule with preseason, travel and the international games so as I say we are easing him down lightly. He's a very bright boy and takes information on board very well and interprets to to a football pitch. His balance is enviable and he has great awareness," revealed the former Arsenal and Juventus midfielder, on the dossier he had prepared on the apple-in-the-eye of I-League side Bengaluru FC.  

Additionally speaking tactics, the coach surmised, "I'm formulating a system in my mind for the first game and every training session now gives me things I can digest and think on to develop those ideas. We are fine-tuning the formation and will be extending session to 11 v 11"

Finally, the Premier League (PL) winner updated the fans about injuries to the franchises players, yesterday. "Diego (Colotto) and Sushant (Mathew) haven't trained with the team today, though the latter shoud be ready for tomorrow (today). Diego will be a little longer and probably will not train until we return to India on the 21st (September, 2015). But its a straight forward injury he has." 

FC Pune City kick-off their ISL campaign at the Shree Chhatrapati Balewadi Sports Complex, Pune, in the Maharashtra derby versus Mumbai City FC on 5th October.
