The 2015 Hero Indian Super League will kick off on Saturday, October 3.
Ethiopian striker, Fikru Teferra, who had set the Indian Super League on fire with his flamboyant goal celebrations, will don the Chennaiyin stripes this year.
Teferra, who scored five goals for defending champions Atletico de Kolkata last season before moving to Chennaiyin FC, recently told the media: “I am a new player but they [fans] treated me as if I have been playing for them for years. I am grateful for their support and really excited to score many goals for them,”Fikru exulted.
Chennaiyin FC owned by Abhishek Bachchan promises to be a difficult nut to crack. Names like Edel Bete, Fikru, Elano, Bernard Mendy, Jeje, speak volumes about the strength of the team.
Another ex Kolkata man, Edel Bete, will be under the bar with plans to keep a clean sheet.
Overall, this team boasts of a lot of mettle and strength to harrow their opponents. It remains to be seen how well Elano and Fikru can combine to open the floodgates of goals.
