Hatta’s coach, Italian Fabio Viviani, described the recent league break as “ideal”, considering that it was a good opportunity for the team to develop and gain player experience through the friendly preparatory matches that “The Hurricane” played during that period.
Viviani added in the press conference for the Shabab Al-Ahly match: “We played a group of friendly matches, perhaps the most prominent of all against the Egyptian Al-Ahly team. Our team performed at remarkable levels, and I am satisfied with the way they played in the friendly matches.”
He continued: “It can be said that the Hatta team is ready for the challenges that await it in the second round of the competition, and before that our match against Shabab Al-Ahly, which I will not talk much about because the competitor is known for his ability and technical value. What is important to me to emphasize is that the pause period increased the cohesion of the players and their belief in the requirements.” Looking at them, I became confident that the team is capable of turning the tide and changing its position in the competition table.”
He continued: “The new deals that the club concluded with the Central African national team striker, Cesar Manzuki, and the Nigerian striker, Chisum Igbosholam, have made a great addition to the team and given it tremendous strength. We have tremendous confidence in their abilities to make a difference.”
