Kochi : Kerala Blasters coach Steve Coppell has plenty of reasons to look forward to his team’s first home match against Atletico de Kolkata in this edition of the Hero Indian Super League (HISL) at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Kochi, on Wednesday.

Since taking charge of Kerala Blasters, the former Manchester United winger has been bombarded with tales about the lively atmosphere for a HISL match in Kochi and Coppell is eager to sample the excitement that it provides.

“This game is becoming famous around the world for its atmosphere. People have been talking to me about this since I arrived in India so am looking forward to it,” said Coppell on the eve of his team’s second round clash against the former champions.

Kerala Blasters succumbed to the might of NorthEast United FC in the opening game and looked far from impressive.
