Gerard Nus – We are confident about ourselves and are ready to face Kerala Blasters


After bagging three points against one of the strongest sides of ISL, Northeast United FC is ready to face Kerala Blasters FC tomorrow. Kerala Blasters lost to ATK Mohun Bagan in the opening game of ISL.

Ahead of the match, Gerard Nus spoke to media in a pre-match digital press conference. Talking on the challenge to face Kerala Blasters, Nus said, “Kerala Blasters lost their first match in terms of result but they have proved themselves that they are the best tactically. I see them as one of the toughest opponent as they have the best squad. They are good in terms of buildup play, fitness and ball possession.”

On the win against Mumbai City FC, Nus said, “The team bonded well in all aspects. But, somethings cannot be told in public, so we are still in the process to improve many things. As I think, we need to keep the ball possession as much as possible which will help the players to gain more confidence on the ball either defending or attacking. We also made some substitutes, which turned out to be pretty well worked. Overall, the team has gained confidence as we earned 3 crucial points last game. All the players are eager to perform well and prove themselves.

The clean sheet we kept last game wasn’t the accomplishment of the defenders only but were the efforts of the whole team. I see everyone is committed to their jobs not only players but also the backroom staff. We all know where our minds are but it is our duty to learn and practice more on things that we are not good with. My method is to learn from the previous match and improve more in the next match and so on.” he added.

On the note of injuries and squad rotation policy, Nus said, “Not only Northeast United FC but every ISL team will strive with this problem and it’s even terrible in this pandemic situation. It will be a huge task for head coaches and players themselves to maintain fitness. Due to this factor, squad rotation idea works here actually, implying it on the field giving more opportunities to players to develop themselves.
