Owen Coyle, head coach of Jamshedpur FC, revealed that he was quite influenced and impressed with Thatal’s performance and what the 20-year-old had to contribute to his team. Owen said, “The way our system works needs fast, pacy players, and young Komal fulfills our requirement. His flair in attack is something that would be helpful to us and his hunger to play and win gives him the X-factor. He is one of the prodigies of Indian football like Boris, Narender, Moba, and Jitu, and I am looking forward to work with him.”
