The scheduling of the Indian Super League drew the ire of Atletico de Kolkata marquee manager Antonio Habas after his side finished 1-1 with Delhi Dynamos.
Habas said his charges were tired after turning out in three matches over the past eight days.
Atletico de Kolkata played the tournament opener against Mumbai FC on last Sunday and then travelled to Guwahati to face NorthEast United FC on Thursday before returning to the city for their home tie opposite Dynamos.
“Most of my players were tired. We have been playing at different venues. For us it’s round three, but for Delhi only round two,” he said in the post-match media meet.
On the other hand, Delhi Dynamos manager Harm van Veldhoven criticised match referee Santosh Kumar for not giving a penalty to his team early in the game when skipper Alessandro Del Piero fell down inside the box after being confronted by Jofre Mateu.
