Kolkata: Atletico de Kolkata co-owner Sourav Ganguly said both the Indian Super League (ISL) title triumphs are special to him.

ATK won their second crown in the three-year history of the tournament, beating Kerala Blasters 4-3 on penalties after the teams were tied 1-1 at the end of the extra-time.

"Both the wins are special," Ganguly, who was in Kochi for the summit clash, told reporters here.

"Congratulations to the boys. They have shown great determination to come from behind and win the match," Ganguly said, adding that at one point he thought the final was over for them 'looking at the sea of yellow' in the stands.

"At one point when we were trailing by a goal, I was wondering looking at the sea of yellow that the match may be over."

It was jam-packed at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in the final as part of the stadium filled two hours before kick-off. At the end it was heartbreak for the home fans.

ATK had beaten Blasters, co-owned by Sachin Tendulkar, in the final of the inaugural ISL too.
