HFC Midfielder Sahil Tavora speaks to Sportskeeda in an interview about his time at Hyderabad and more…
Sahil Tavora is one of the few players who has seen the birth of Hyderabad FC and stayed in the city since its inception.
The Panaji-born midfielder, who is one of the midfield engines at the club, has played critical roles for the Yellow and Blacks in their meteoric rise to the top after the dismal start to their ISL career in the 2019-20 edition.
In an exclusive interaction with Sportskeeda, Tavora comes off as urbane and sophisticated and quite a good conversationalist.
🗣 Sahil Tavora: We are a new team and with every passing week, we are only getting better 👊

Q. You are known as one of the midfield engines of Hyderabad. Do you prefer playing box-to-box or as a holding midfielder?
Tavora: Actually, I am comfortable playing in both positions (box-to-box and holding). In the last few years, I have played more as a holding midfielder for Hyderabad and I have thoroughly enjoyed it.
I have no qualms about playing in either position but really enjoy doing the dirty work for the team, so to speak, in the holding midfielder’s spot. As long as I am on the field, I am willing to do anything the coach asks me to do.
