Durand Cup: Mumbai City’s Chhangte has eyes set on title; says personal goals secondary – SportsMediaz


Mumbai City FC’s Lallianzuala Chhangte will head into his team’s Durand Cup quarterfinal tie against Chennaiyin FC as the top scorer of the competition with five goals. But personal accolades are hardly a concern for the 25-year-old forward from Mizoram.

Last season, FC Goa scripted history by winning its first Durand Cup title.

This season, Mumbai stands at a similar threshold but the battle is far from over and standing in its immediate way are the resolute Marina Machans.

“I don’t feel any added pressure of being the top scorer because the team comes first. Winning the Golden Boot will feel good but the Durand Cop trophy is most important,” says Chhangte in a chat with  Sportstar ahead of Mumbai’s quarters match against Chennaiyin on Sunday, September 11.
