He believes that Sergio’s experience added a huge impact in the squad and helped the players gain confidence, which gives him the confidence that Goa can go on to clinch the ISL title this year.
On September 25, FC Goa posted a video on his official social media handle, where Kohli can be seen saying, “I'm confident we will do wonders this season, I was extremely proud to see the team perform under Sergio Lobera the way it did last year.”
