Kibu Vicuña- The overseer of the Blasters, to help the 2 time ISL runners up, finally lift up the trophy


Kibu Vicuña
Kerala Blasters are undoubtedly one of the best teams in the ISL, though they haven’t won the ISL yet, the 2 times runners up have always managed to entertain us. The last two seasons have been difficult for the Blasters, finishing the league in the bottom half, even after having a complete team.
This year, with Kibu Vicuña being appointed as the head coach of the team, the Kerala fans have their fingers crossed that Kibu Vicuña can help the Blasters have a prosperous 2020-21 season. We recently got the opportunity to ask him a few questions about his experiences and ambitions. Here is how the conversation took place.

Q1. How are you doing during this whole lockdown period and this pandemic, are you watching matches, working on your tactics or coming up with different plans, what’s going on?

Kibu – I have been watching a lot of football, especially some of the European teams like Atlanta, Bayern Munich, Sevilla, etc. and working every day with the team as we prepare for the pre-season. I also took advantage of the lockdown by reading books on football and psychology and by doing a course with UEFA to be a teacher in the Spanish Federation.

Q2. We all know that it’s not your first time here in India, so tell us a bit about your experience here in India and winning the I league trophy with Mohun Bagan.

Kibu- I had a wonderful experience with Mohun Bagan last season not only because we won the I-league but also because we were very competitive throughout the tournament. We came second in the Kolkata League and also reached the finals of the Durand Cup at the beginning of the season which was very important to prepare the team. I believe we played some really good football. I’m hoping to replicate the same with Kerala Blasters in the upcoming season.

Q3. When you came to know that you will be joining Mohun Bagan, how were you feeling and also before joining MB did you know about Indian football?

Kibu- The Indian Leagues, both ISL and the I-League are quite popular in Spain since there are a lot of Spanish players in both the leagues. So when I signed with Mohun Bagan, I started to watch more matches for scouting and preparing a good team.
