Chennaiyin FC coach Marco Materazzi today dedicated his side's 4-0 win over FC Goa in a third round match of the Indian Super League football tournament here to Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan, the father of club co-owner Abhishek.
"It was a fantastic win, my boys combined as a team. I have worked on our previous mistakes and made four changes and it worked well," Materazzi said after the match.
"I dedicate the victory to Mr (Amitabh) Bachchan as well as my players," Materazzi said about Bachchan who turned 73 today.
Talking further about his side's comprehensive win, he said, "We started with the right attitude and kept the same throughout the match which helped us to create so many chances.
"Unlike in the last two matches, today we had the right understanding between defenders, midfielders and the strikers which helped us in our win," stated Italian Materazzi, a World Cup winner.
FC Goa coach Zico was disappointed that his team failed to put up the same kind of performance which they displayed in the last two matches.
"Our opponents outbeat us in all department and we have to work on our mistakes and keep our head high to play better in the upcoming matches," stated Zico.
