German fourth division (Regionalliga Nordost) club RB Leipzig are not going to sign Indian international goalkeeper Subrata Pal ( RB Leipzig: Subrata not selected, but club to invite him again), but at the club they were all praise for the Indian keeper. I had a chance to speak to Subrata in Leipzig and here in part two, we speak about Team India and his new club Prayag United SC.
You missed a few matches for India late last year and this year due to injury. Now you return to Team India under national coach Wim Koevermans. How do you see things?
It will be new, not only for me but for all of us. We all start fresh under the new coach (Wim Koevermans) and we will have to perform at the camp, if I perform well then I stay in the team otherwise not.
I will give 100% and try my level best to impress the coach with my qualities and abilities then I want to be in the first eleven as India’s no.1 once again to win and lift the Nehru Cup!
You have left Pune FC to return to Kolkata to sign for Prayag United SC, who have been the big spenders in Indian football this summer. What are your expectations from the new season?
I currently am not thinking about my new club, the I-League or the Kolkata league. My first target is to win with India the Nehru Cup again. Once the tournament is over I will join Prayag United and focus on the season ahead with them, knowing that there is pressure to perform and win trophies.
