Šobić: Thanks to my Players for their Performance Against the Emirates


Al Ain Croatian head coach, Šobić, opened the post-match press conference by expressing his satisfaction with the performance of his team against the Emirates. He stated: “Players did well in the match, and they had numerous great chances to score but they missed them. I can say that we could at least score three goals. however, we were not lucky enough tonight and I would like to thank all the players for all they did tonight.”

Responding to a question on the impact of missing Marcus Berg in this match and whether his presence would change the result, he said: “I believe that the question is the answer itself. If Marcus had played tonight, he would have scored more than one goal given the chances we missed.”

Commenting on the absent players and his assessment of the team conditions considering that they have a “derby” match against Al Wahda this coming week, he said: “Absolutely, the team’s preparations will continue as usual and the starting lineup will have the fully ready players only.”
