Manuel Roca – It was a very boring game


This article contains the transcribed version of the post-match press conferences of both the gaffers and is split into two pages.

An enticing game between Hyderabad FC and NorthEast United FC came to a stalemate as both the teams shared spoils in a goalless game. But it might be safe to say the Hyderabad FC dominated the game, albeit it ended in a stalemate.

Manuel Roca said,

“I felt like it was a very boring, without any rhythm, and slow balls. I think both the teams should have tried something more. They had played their previous game only three days ago. If you notice, only one team has managed to win their first game after having spent a long gap. Maybe all the teams are very tired but that is no excuse. But I think the result that came today is fair.

“NorthEast United FC are now a much more organized team with lethal strikers up front. I guess this is one of the games that we didn’t play with a lot of rhythm. Because we were focused too much on countering one strong aspect of NorthEast United FC that we didn’t pay much attention to any of the other aspects of the game. At this point, I feel the draw is fine for us but I assure that we will keep fighting till the end of the competition.”

Manuel Roca further said that both Benjamin Lambot and Dylan Fox played a very good game and did well in stopping Aridane Santana and Fran Sandaza.

“I do not have much to tell to my players, I’m happy with all the effort they put in. I guess our planning against NorthEast United FC could have been better, though.”

Manuel Roca signed off by saying that Joel Chianese was fit for today, but didn’t want to take any risk and that he’ll be available for the next game.
