The Coimbatore-based side won their maiden I-league title in only their third season of top-flight football.
Chennai City come-from back from a goal down to secure a 3-1 victory over Minerva Punjab to win the 2018-19 I-League title on the final matchday at the Nehru Stadium in Coimbatore on Saturday evening.
Roland Bilala handed (3´) had handed Minerva Punjab a shock lead. But Pedro Manzi (56´) scored from the spot to equalize before Gaurav Bora´s brace (69´ and 90+3´) sealed the title for the Akbar Nawas-coached side.
Chennai finished with 43 points, one ahead of Quess East Bengal (QEB), who despite winning their final game in Kozhikode against Gokulam Kerala, saw their dreams of the first-ever title triumph fade away in Coimbatore.
It was a fitting attacking and professional end to a brilliant campaign ably steered by Singaporean coach Akbar Nawas and as Bhaskaran blew for full-time there scenes of emotions and joy all around the stadium.
