Sights All Set to Snatch the Match’s Three Points.. Pedro: Our Mission Against Fujairah is Harder than Sharjah’s


Portuguese Pedro Emmanuel, head coach of Al Ain Football Team, stated that his team has critical moments and that beating the top team of the league did not grant his team an advanced position at the standing table.

“We know that our victory over Al Sharjah does not mean anything if we do not go on and win the guests, Fujairah Team,” Pedro said in the pre-match press conference of matchweek 17 of the Arabian Gulf League scheduled to be held on Friday 19th February 2021 at Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium.

He added: “Our match against Fujairah is so important, and we must show our quality skills. This week was also important as we regained some players who did not play with the team for a long time.”

He pointed out that the team’s preparations for the coming match were complicated, considering that the opponent terminated the former coach’s contract and has a new head coach. “The coming match would be as if it is our first match in the season as we do not have any clue about the new coach’s ideas. It is expected that he made certain changes during the past days in the team’s lineup. This is for sure a new challenge for us.”

He went on saying: “Our last match was difficult and against a strong team. However, the players’ reaction was good not only at the physical level but also at the mental level. We conceded the first goal in the early minutes, but we come back to the match and won the home team who tops the league standing table.”

Pedro concluded his statement by stressing that the coming match is the most important one and sights all set to snatch its three points.
