In the press conference after the match between Baniyas and Al Jazira for the Arabian Gulf League which was ended by draw with 2-2, the coach Mr. Jurcic said the following:
“My first impression about the game was that we had to win today but we did not take advantage of the opportunities we had.”
“I talked to the players before the game and told them that we should respect Al Jazira as they are a strong team.”
“We had to take advantage of man to man opportunities, and I was dissatisfied with missing opportunities this way but overall the performance was very good.”
“I congratulate my players on this outstanding combat performance because we were able on two occasions to come back and this is a very important reaction.”
“This result gives us a distinct to complement our career and work in a positive atmosphere.”
“Yes, we have three draws, but in front of Al-Jazira, Al-Wasel and playing with ten men 80 minutes with Fujairah, but of course the team needs to win.
“When you play against a strong team like Al Jazira, it has a strong attack, asking our players to make a strong effort to pressure them and not to make them play comfortably.”
