AT: What is equation between Seminlen Doungel and football?

SD: Well, football is just not a game. Its my life. I can’t live without football. I career in football began from my infancy. Since then it’s my passion. It gives me immense pleasure to think that I kicked off my chances to play along with football legends. My favorite players include Joan Capdevila who is shining at the Northeast United FC. This is apart from the indomitable Koke.

AT: Do you have any problem while you are playing with your foreign counterparts?

SD: Definitely. But it methinks a minor one. That’s communication problem. But I have been receiving overwhelming support from all players. They often have been helping me get rid of the hardship. You see how I have been staying far away from my family only because of football. I won’t be there with them even in the time of the upcoming Christmas.

AT: How far you are confident of the victory for the NE FC?

SD: I am fully confident of their victory in the Indian Super League matches. I am confident that my training would help them strike victory in the upcoming matches.
