Mohammedan Sporting coach credits dedication for I-League return

Recalling the time he took over as coach, Sen said the players were low on morale but gradually lifted themselves. "A coach is as good as his bunch of players. When I took over on February 28 this year, the morale of the team was very low...I had two days time to prepare them for the second Division League. We trained in Kolkata for the two days and then left for Indore," Sen recollected.
