FIFA president’s pat for CCFC

FIFA president Gianni Infantino on Wednesday congratulated Chennai City FC for winning its maiden I-League title.

“I was delighted to hear that Chennai City FC have been crowned 2018-19 I-League Champions. It gives me great pleasure to congratulate them for their first ever championship title,” Infantino said in a letter addressed to the All India Football Federation.

“This is, no doubt, the result of effort and hard work, and everybody involved can be proud of this great achievement.

“I encourage them to continue working with determination and motivation,” Infantino said.

Chennai City FC won its maiden I-League title earlier this month, after a thrilling final-day finish, that saw the team end the league with 43 points, just a point above Quess East Bengal.
