Amarjit Singh says he made his national team debut because of Igor Stimac

Jamshedpur Fc wonder player Anmarjit Singh has proved his skills with his team and the national camp. Amarjit has lost his last season due to a broken arm injury. The 19 years old proves his potential at the FIFA U-17 World Cup too.

In an interaction with the Indian Football team’s official Instagram live session Amarjit Singh shared so many unspoken truths.

Amarjit Singh says his parents always told him to take responsibility 

“From my childhood, I belong to a poor family so whenever I used to get anything, for example, like a shoe to play football, you had to wear it again and again, if it tore, you had to stitch it back to wear it again. So I knew the value and I learned these small things from responsibilities to taking care of things.

“My parents used to tell me that if I received anything, I need to take care of it and I need to take full responsibility. From that time, I have learned these little things and it has worked well for me, so my family has helped me a lot.” Amarjit Singh told Indian Football official Instagram live session.

Amarjit Singh says gave them a ladder by promoting them to I-League

“Just months after the World Cup, when we learned that we will be playing in the I-League, it was like a big achievement for us because AIFF had created a ladder for us. It was a bit scary for us too because there were so many good teams in the I-League like Mohun Bagan, East Bengal, NEROCA etc. We thought they have foreigners too, good Indian players, senior players, so how do we compete against them? People from the AIFF committee, our coaches, staff and everyone motivated us and told us we could do something in the Hero I-League.”

Amarjit Singh says Igor Stimac like those players who gave their best

“The coach likes players who give their best. Regardless of whether you are a junior or a senior player, he treats everyone equally. Transitions are very important for him in the game. When the opponents snatch the ball, we have to remain compact at the back and defend like a team. When we get the ball, especially in my area as a defensive midfielder, I have to quickly look for (Anirudh) Thapa bhai, Udanta (Singh) Bhai on the wing, Sahal (Abdul Samad) and (Lallianzuala) Chhangte, I have to find them. I don’t have to dribble, I have to quickly supply the ball.”

“He likes these things. So I try to apply the things on the field that the coach likes. He is a very good coach. I got my debut because of the coach, if the coach wouldn’t have been there, maybe I wouldn’t have got it. Whenever I make a mistake in the match, he used to tell me that, ‘No problem, you are a young player, it is your time to learn’ and told us to learn as much as you can. As young players coming into the team, we are very lucky that we have got such a coach.” Amarjit Singh concluded.
