    BC Ramesh on Shadloui’s inclusion

    We came in fully intending to get Shadloui. We wanted a main left corner and that’s why we went all out for Shadloui.

    If Fazel had come ahead, we would have bid on merit. Shadloui is a rising star. In the Asian Championship final, we saw his raiding skills too. His all-round ability is something we like and comes in well with our sensibilities.

    We don’t go by the name, we go by the position. We looked at the performances over the past seven months.

    Are you now looking for a captaincy option?

    No, we have Aslam. He is a knowledgeable player and Shadloui too has leadership qualities. We will take a call in training about who is able to take control of proceedings and earn the faith of the team.

    We will be looking for backup players to strengthen the bench.

    Does Shadloui’s arrival mean Akash Shinde and others go down the pecking order:

    Aslam, Akash and Mohit are all starting 7 players. We have a good team.
