Former India cricket captain Sourav Ganguly and co-owner of Indian Super League (ISL) side ATK hopes that the team will rise afresh after a forgettable last season.

The two-time champion looked completely out of sorts in the last season finishing a dismal ninth, its worst-ever performance since the inception of the league.

This season, ATK has made its intentions clear, roping in Steve Coppell, who had guided Kerala Blasters to a runner-up finish in his first season, and took debutant Jamshedpur FC to a creditable fifth place in the previous edition.

“To all, this is the new film of the season, hopefully, it will bring us luck and we will have a good year. Our record at Hero ISL is phenomenal, yes, it wasn’t a great last year, but we will surely turn it around this time,” Ganguly said on the sidelines of a promotional shoot.

Season five of ISL will kick off with ATK taking on Kerala Blasters FC on September 29 at the Saltlake Stadium.
