In views contrasting to the Game style and the centric approach of the Highlanders’ side; Gerard opined his eyeshot and clinched that his side doesn’t rely only on counters and opens up to play aggressive and attacking upfront. ” I don’t think we are defensive.

But we’re all ready to foist a tough challenge and ensuring to stop him from all sides.” stated Nus.
Alike this season, the Highlanders had a brilliant start to their previous season but hard was the luck as they crippled in the meantime, which further lead them to the below rankings and it was a season to forget for them. “This is a competitive league and we will try to prove this kind of a statistic wrong, and if we get the three points tomorrow that’s going to be the best start ever for us. The team wants more. We are not just comfortable in the current position. We will be aiming to go for the top spot.” opined Gerard positively.
“We are working hard to be sure that we are not going to lose and try to go for three points in every single game but I am not worried that one day it might happen , this is very uncertain. We’re working really hard, and we’re sticking to our identity. We have our best resources. We have a compatible squad. Efficiency Match, the App we designed years back is now quite helpful and it helps our players to operate with the strategies and it’s fun. And I’m proud of what we have done so far.” he added further.

Of late, the Uruguayan is coping well with the situations and training himself to be fit in this bio-bubble secure. ” We guys are doing a great job now, and our coordination is clicking well.
