Margao: Italy's World Cup-winning player Marco Materazzi and former Manchester United defender Mikael Silvestre are aware that they are well past their prime but they would like to share their vast experience with the Indian youngsters as Chennaiyin FC begin their ISL journey Thursday.
"I will play if needed but won't start Thursday. It's not easy to adapat to this kind of weather but I will manage with time," said Chennai team's player-cum manager Materazzi.
For him, Chennayin are the best team amongst the eight in the fray. "For me, we have the best team. We had lesser time to train than others but we have a squad full of professionals so I am confident about our chances." (ISL Will Help Cricket-Crazy India, Says FIFA)
