Rajasthan United FC head coach, Francesc Bonet has opened up on the experience of working in India, revealing that he has "enjoyed" the experience while reiterating that football is in India's "blood".

Bonet who is just 28-years-old is the youngest coach in the I-League this season, has made quite an impression in what is his first year Indian football, with the Spaniard making his side into a well oiled outfit as they have given their rivals a run for their money whenever anybody has come up against them.

“The experience has been good because I enjoy it a lot with the players. The players trust my way to coach so they make me feel very comfortable. I like challenges and I decided to leave Spain and try other countries. I like the culture of India and I know football is in their blood! For me, it is a big challenge as I think not about just helping my team but also the entire country," he said when asked on the experience of coaching in India.

Rajasthan are currently placed seventh in the I-League table with 14 points from 10 games, though what will worry Bonet is that they have registered more draws than wins and it is something he will look to improve upon.

Rajasthan will next be seen in action when they face sixth place, NEROCA on Thursday, 14 April.
