Mirel Radoi, the first football team at Al Bataeh Club coach, said that he did not want his team’s match in the first round of the ADNOC Pro League to be against a strong team such as Al Wahda, stressing at the same time that they have no choice but to face off.
Radoi bet that the match will be strong and difficult, indicating that they are facing a team competing to win the championship title, and they have great ambitions that they want to achieve.
He added: The goals of the two teams are different, we will not play relaxed, and we will not allow them to control the course of the game, and continued: They have a good coach I saw when he was coach of Al-Ahli in Saudi Arabia and I admire the way he plays.
Radoi stressed the need to play carefully in front of the way the opponent plays, and we may not give all our strength in the first game and this is very normal, and we must be smart and know when to cover spaces and when to recover our energy not only because of the strength of the opponent but also because of the weather.
It’s better for us to get a point or the three points, and not every coach may succeed in achieving the points they want in every game, but playing the first game of the league against a strong team like Al Wahda gives the players great confidence.
AlBataeh coach admitted that a draw against AlWahda is very difficult, especially since the match is held at home and among their fans, but we are ready to play under pressure, and we come out of the match with a result that satisfies our ambitions, and added: Our goal this season is to appear better than the previous season, and we will play very seriously and will not joke in any match we play, and we will play the next match better than the previous one, regardless of the opponent
