Galtier: I will restore the fighting spirit of the players…

Al Duhail Head Coach Galtier stressed that the team must change their performance in the next match and achieve victory. The coach said in the pre-match press conference that was held at 5 pm yesterday evening in the club’s press conference hall: Before I talk about our next match versus Al Markhiya, I must talk our previous matches, the most recent of which was versus Al Gharafa. No one in the club is satisfied with what happened in our previous matches, and we must win the upcoming matches. As coach of the team, I will take some measures that will benefit the team in the coming period.

Galtier added: In the last match, we had a good first half, but in the second half we conceded two goals and I waited for the players’ reaction, but we were not organized, which contributed to our failure to win the match. Apart from the tactics and organization inside on the field of play, what bothered me was the lack of reaction and the absence of the team’s personality. Some players go to the matches only to win, and we are a big club that targets the top in the league or any other competition. To achieve this, the players must have the personality they used to have, but many players do not have the fighting spirit, and I will change this mentality in the next matches.

Galtier continued: Regarding our next match, regardless of the opponent, whether they are at the top of the league table or at the bottom, we have to alter the shape of the team in order to win and present our usual performance during the match, because our performance declines in the second half, which cost us points.
