Ranbir Kapoor recently talked about his Indian Super League (ISL) team Mumbai City FC, and said that he’s glad that now that the major stars of the show have left the team, it’ll give the chance to the local players to make their name and perform well in the upcoming league matches, “Yes, of course. Mumbai City FC are missing the star factor. There is no doubt Chhetri and Forlan were our crowd-pullers last season. But this is one of the challenges we will face this season. We need to have new stars. And you never know, we might have a new local star,” he told a major publishing site.
The stars of the previous competition Diego Forlan, who hails from Uruguay and Sunil Chhetri from India left the team, leaving it without an anchor that could support it towards a win. But Ranbir doesn’t seem too concerned with the changes and hopes that the new additions to the team will prove their mettle.
The performance of Mumbai City FC has been improving as the seasons have gone onward, with 6 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses last year, and the team has been praised for its resilience and its team work by many audience members.
