Both Rizwan and Nashid are in line to return for Eagles against Valencia on Wednesday – a match that Coach Ihsan believes will be a “great football match”. Neither Nashid nor Rizwan has featured so far in the season.
Speaking at the pre-match press briefing, Ihsan expressed his cheerfulness over the return of two key figures that has been out on injuries and personnel reasons. But Ihsan said that he is unhappy with the foreign players in his squad.
“It’s good that both Rizwan and Nashid are back”.
“But, I am not satisfied with the foreigners except Sujan (Sri Lankan goalkeeper)”.
“They are not much useful and doesn’t make any difference with the locals. I will replace them in the transfer window”.
Eagles is placed in fourth with four points from three games when they are set to face Valencia who is in second from bottom. Ihsan said that it is always easy to play against Valencia as they are a team who try to play a beautiful game.
“Valencia is not a team that will rush to score goals after just two passes. Instead, they will try to deliver a good football which makes the game easier for us”.
“That doesn’t mean that we take them as an easy side. We see them as a strong team with a combination of experienced players”.
The match between Eagles and Valencia is set to kick off at 1600hrs, Wednesday 12th of April 2017. This is the fourth game of both teams in the Male’ League.
