Chennaiyin FC welcomed by fans on return after pre-season

CHENNAI: Indian Super League champions Chennaiyin FC returned following their pre-season tour of Malaysia and Goa on Saturday evening.

The team arrived to a hero's welcome, with the fans showing up with banners and placards to mark their homecoming.

CFC Head Coach John Gregory was delighted by the reception his team received from the fans.

"The love and adulation we get from our fantastic fans is what motivates us the most. It is so heartening to see them show up in numbers to welcome us home. Their unconditional support never ceases to amaze us. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of them," said Gregory. 

The CFC senior squad then made way to their brand new home at the club's new first-team base at Sri Ramachandra Institute of Higher Education & Research.

CFC kick off their title defence with a rematch of last season's final against Bengaluru FC
away from home on Sunday.
