The pre match press conference for between AlBataeh and the Emirates

Goran Tomic, head coach of Al Bataeh’s first football team, expressed his great happiness with the level of the players in training, during the break in the league championship.

Tomic said during the introductory press conference: “The match that always comes after a break is very important, and we always strive to win it, and I hope that this will be achieved against the UAE.”

He continued:

Emirates team has changes in the squad and also a new coach so the match will not be easy, we are ready for the match and also all the players are ready to give everything they have.

He added during the press conference:

The team performed very well in the first round and we will try to be better than the first round, but it will not be that easy to repeat the same level in the second round, but we are going through the training step by step to reach this goal.

Goran continued:

The winter transfer window is still open and we have not reached any fixed option, but we are trying to see our needs in the team and this matter will be determined during the coming period.

He concluded:

The team is ready but we are losing Denny Borges because he received the red card in the match against Hatta and Hamad Al Balushi, who suffered an injury during training.

For his part, Abdullah AlRifai, the center back of Al-Bataeh, said that they prepared themselves well during the break, and revealed that all the players came to the training with open appetite, great desire and unparalleled enthusiasm in order to reach the highest degree of technical and physical readiness.

He continued during the introductory press conference:

The friendlies we’ve played have benefited us a lot, and we’re planning for a good start in the second round and building on the good work we started in the first round.
