It is in order to make improvements and that’s what prompted us to engage some young players in the last match against Emirates and it is not fair to blame those young players for the defeat because the experienced players made mistakes also.

The coach said that before the Al Shabab match many people talked about the poor status of the team and the level of his experienced players and the stars, and when we involved our young players and they made a fantastic performance and I involve some of them against Emirates again people are not satisfied because some experienced players didn’t played. So in football you satisfy everyone.

And absences, the coach talked about the continued absence of Dada and Abdulsalam until further notice with the absence of Dida for the red card. Faisal Al Khedim is now back to training with the group but will not be ready for the next match. Also the absence of Hassan Al Shatri and Mohammed Hussain of the injury.

And about Daniel Hernandez, the coach said that the player is suffering from some pain and fatigue, which is difficult for us to involve him in the last match.

Gomes concluded that we are working and we are still working and admits he personally that he is making an effort and hard work with Baniyas more than any previous team he coached, and he confirms again that he has full confidence in the team and in the project of the club.

The player Abdullah Al Nobi also attended the press conference who admitted that the team is trying to bypass what happened in the last match against Emirates and they recognized the difficulty of this sitDSC_4936uation, but the players are thinking only in the next match against Al Ahli and getting a positive result is the main goal for now.
