ATK grabbed a lot of attention this summer when they roped in strike Roy Krishna and David Williams from A-League side Wellington Phoenix.
The duo had netted 29 goals for Wellington Phoenix last season in the A-League and hence there was a lot of hype surrounding the two players.
Both the strikers have lived up to expectations so far scoring three goals each in four matches in the ongoing Indian Super League (ISL).
Roy Krishna, on Saturday, bagged a brace and guided ATK to their third consecutive win in the ISL which propelled the Kolkata-based side to the top of the table before the international break.
Speaking to Goal on his performance against Jamshedpur FC, Krishna said, “It has been good so far. As a striker, I need to score goals. It's good that I scored two goals today but credit goes to the team. I think we defended really well when we needed to. Everyone played really well today.”
On his partnership with Williams, the Fijian international explained, “We signed here for a reason. We were just doing our job. I think the coach knows the way we play. David Williams is a class player and linking with and playing alongside him makes me a better player.”
Speaking on the team’s performance and the upcoming international break, the striker cautioned, “We cannot get carried away with these wins. I think Jamshedpur were tough for a reason. Everything went well today. We need to get back to our basics. A lot of improvement is needed and this break will help us. Every team is a threat.”
