I Was Not Happy with Al Nasr’s Goal in the Last Match.. Rebrov: We Must Be Highly Motivated and Serious to Ensure Qualifying for the Final Match of the ADIB Cup


Laba and Tin Do Their Best in the Recovery Programs to Be in Form

“I could not say that I feel relaxed for winning the first leg match and hope the players have the same feeling as everything could happen in the cups’ semifinals,” Sergiy Rebrov stated in the pre-match press conference of second leg match of ADIB Cup against Al Nasr held this evening.

He added: “Yes, everything is possible, given it is an away match and such matches are always difficult. However, I would have been happier if the team had not conceded a goal last match as 0-3 or 3-1 are different, and good we scored a fourth goal.”

Rebrov stressed that the players should know well that to win against the home team, they should show a high level of seriousness and be highly motivated, as anything could happen. He pointed out that he would explain that to the players during the training sessions.

“We know we have the advantage by winning Al Nasr in the first leg match. Yet, we still have another match, and this is why we should prepare well and play seriously,” he said.

He emphasized that Al Nasr would fight hard to win Al Ain for sure, and they scored the last match even when the result on screens showed it was 3-0. He stated that this is why players should be highly motivated and serious.

Regarding the injured players, Rebrov replied: “We will see who is ready, especially from those who did not play the first leg match, and they are doing their best.”

“Tin and Laba Kodjo are doing well with their recovery programs and hope both will be ready for the upcoming match,” he concluded.
