Coach`s Welcome

I have been in Kashmir for three years and have enjoyed every second in the place. I am here for football and am interested only in the success of Real Kashmir. The (political) situation has never been an issue for us as a team. We are focused on the same work and same motivation. Robertson admitted that his team would now have to live up to growing public expectations. "Probably for the first time in the club's history, especially after finishing third last year and having won the second division of the league two years ago, expectations are high not just for ourselves but for the team owners and supporters as well. We are not kids on the block anymore.
David Robertson(Coach)
