The 63 years Portuguese manager thinks that his team needs to win every match at this point of the season of ISL season 3.
This Saturday the Northeast United will play a FOOTBALL MATCH against Chennaiyin FC,and the Nelo Vingada’s crew will try to collect all the three points from Chennaiyin fc’s home ground.
According to the Northeast United coach the thinks that NorthEast United, Chennaiyin, FC Pune City and Kerala Blasters these teams have a chance to go to the next round and qualify for the Play Offs.
The coach expresses:
"As I always say the next game for me and my team is the most important and the most difficult one. But it is more than that - it's very crucial for both teams. Even though Chennaiyin has played one more game than us but still both have chance to qualify for the playoffs. There is chance for Kerala,
Pune, NorthEast or Chennaiyin. Only Mumbai is safe and others are in it,"
"Regarding the last few games, our team has lost some when the performance was good. But in football, only result is important
. So tomorrow we will target to play for a result to send us to a comfortable position to qualify. It will be hard, it will be difficult, but Chennai won in Guwahati and we can win here.
"Our determination is to win. We are still respecting Chennaiyin and respecting their champions tag. But the way we are playing, also given that now our team stability is better than few weeks back, I hope we can be the real NorthEast United and face the organisation of Chennaiyin,”
The Coach thinks that it is a must win game for his boys as if they manage to win that match they will have a bright chance to qualify for the Play Offs.
“My words are the same today as I said when we played against Pune. We have only two options – win or win,"the coach expressed.
The coach thinks they manage to win their match against FC Pune City where they were not at his best and they lost many matches where they play good football.
The coach express: "Against Pune, a draw wouldn't have put us out but would have been like a step back, but we won. To be honest we had better games before and we didn’t get results. Against Pune we did so-so but we won. In Kolkata we were much better than Atletico, but we drew. In Goa we were much, much better but we missed chances and we lost those games in the last second. Maybe in Pune we were lucky even though we had more second half chances. My concentration tomorrow will be to win the game. If we play with concentration, we can win,”
