Mumbai: Mumbai City FC coach Peter Reid is hopeful his 'marquee' player, former Sweden and Arsenal star Fredrik Ljungberg will be fit to face Atletico de Kolkata in the opening match of the inaugural Indian Super League (ISL) in Kolkata Oct 12.
One of the biggest names of the football tournament, Ljungberg is carrying a niggle he suffered during practice.
"Hopefully, Freddie will get to play his part in the game. This is the start of the competition and so it is a massive game. It is a big opportunity to play here and hopefully we will come up with the right result," Reid said Friday.
