This evening, the introductory press conference for the Baniyas match against Al Dhafra was held for the fourth round of the ADNOC Professional League, which will be held at Hamdan bin Zayed Stadium. The press conference was attended by assistant coach Ahmed Al Hammadi and player Isaac Thelin.
The coach spoke about the importance of the upcoming match against Al Dhafra and the team's urgent need for the three points in this round, adding: "An important match, we respect the Al Dhafra team, the Al Dhafra team has developed in the recent period and offers good levels, and it is a match outside our land, so it will have its own calculations."
Talking about what is missing from Baniyas to achieve its first win of the season, Al Hammadi commented: “We are confident in our team
We played good matches against big teams, all of which are candidates for the league title. We were unlucky in the previous matches, but we are confident that victory will come in the upcoming matches and we will restore Baniyas to his natural position.”
As for the team's absence, Al Hammadi confirmed that everyone is ready for this confrontation, except for the absence of Argentina's Nicolas Gimenez, who received a red card in the previous match against Al Ain, but the coach worked to find the appropriate alternative to replace him in the next match.
In the end, Al Hammadi promised the Baniyas fans that the team will return again to achieve victories and will appear in the image that the Baniyas fans were accustomed to in the previous season.
The Swedish newcomer, Isaac Thelin, also spoke, who explained that he blended in quickly among his new colleagues and that the atmosphere here in the team is positive and he is very excited to play the next match against Al Dhafra.
Thelin added: "I'm glad to be here. It's great.
In the first match, we played a good first half, but we were unable to score. We lost a lot of opportunities to score, and we will try to take advantage of the chances in the upcoming matches.
Talking about his information about the UAE league only, Thelin explained: "I have many friends who played in the UAE league and one of them is Marcus Berg, the former Al Ain player, and I have good impressions of football here.
