Today was held the press conference for the Baniyas match against Dibba for the 13th round of Arabian Gulf League, which will be held next Thursday, at Baniyas Stadium. The press conference attended by of coach Jurcic and the player Salem Al Hammadi with a number of local press.
The coach started by describing the game as the most important, strongest and dangerous game of the first round and we have to focus from the beginning to get a positive result against a strong and stubborn team such as Dibba, who play a beautiful football, although he is in last rank.
“We have to enter the game with high concentration and avoid what happened to Al Wahda against Dibba in the Cup, where they did not enter the atmosphere of the game, which cost them to lose a historic result”
He explained that the Dibba team has dangerous players who are capable of threatening the goal of our team, and also that they rely heavily on rapid counter-attacks, which must take in mind.
The team’s absence Jurcic said that the team will miss Hamad Al Ahbabi’s due to injury and the absence of Ahmed Dada, who has been injured for some time. While Pedro Condi suffered an injury prevented him from completing the last match against Al Nasr, but hoped that it would not prevent him from participating in this game.
“The game will be the culmination of the team’s efforts in the first round, which lasted for five months and we have to get out of the three points and reach the point of the eighteenth, which ensures us to stay in the duel at the end of the first phase of the league.”
As for the next stop, the coach explained that there will be a break after the Arabian Gulf Cup, where all competitions will be suspended because of the Asian Cup in UAE where there will be a long break until February, where players will have a rest period to change the atmosphere and then to return to a number of friendly matches before resuming the league again..
Al-Hammadi also said that the table does not reflect the level of Dibba. Although Dibba is in the last position, they are a good footballer and they are capable of a dangerous combination for our team.
He added that the match would be the best occasion to crown the first round efforts and exit the full three points and finish the first round in a warm position in the table.
