Abhishek Bachchan dedicates ISL title to Chennaiites

Referring to the battering that Chennai took from the torrential rains and the resultant deluge, Chennaiyin FC co-owner Abhishek Bachchan rightfully dedicated his team’s title triumph to the people of the city.

“None of us have gone back home yet for we wanted to share the cup with the people of Chennai first,” he said at the Nehru Stadium on Monday. Also present, was co-owner Vita Dani and some members of the champion squad, basking in the achievement.

“It was heartbreaking for the boys that they were not able to play the first-leg semifinal at the Marina Arena. The team played this tournament for the people of Chennai and the journey would be incomplete if we don’t share the victory with our fans,” he added.
