This year, most of the leading football players of the Bengaluru FC team like Sunil Chetri and Udanta Singh had to remain busy with Indian football team too and had to divide their time among both the teams.

However, Jarni claimed he is not deterred with the efficiency of the Bengaluru FC team and is only concerned for the NEUFC to give their best performance and win the ISL trophy this year.

It may be mentioned that NEUFC will play their second match against Odisha FC on October 26.

This match will be held at Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium in Guwahati from 7.30 pm.

Jarni, a former Croatian professional footballer, said, “We are working every day to get better. Some days are not good. But with time the team will take shape. Only hard work and sweat can help you reach there.”
