The man responsible for the record two-time win of ATK in Indian Super League is held quarantined in Madrid, his home.

Head coach Antonio Habas is the reason behind the ATK's win over Chennai FC. He took a flight from Kolkata via Dubai to reach Madrid, which is in lock down due to the surge of fatalities that rose from 309 deaths in 16 March to 491 on 17 March.

“Madrid is blocked, the people have to be in their homes and only can go out for minimal services,” Habas told IANS.

When asked if he faced any problems while travelling home, he said, he did have any problems there. ''I’m in my house, the government thinks that in 15 days everything will be normal." He still can go out for essential purposes. “Yes, but you can go out to perform first needs like daily purchases, pharmacy, work and so on,” said Habas who is the only coach to win the ISL two times.
