French coach Rudi Garcia, coach of the Al-Nasr first football team, explained that his team achieved what he described as “miracles” after achieving a series of victories in the Saudi Roshen League, and qualifying for the semi-finals of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques Cup in light of the injuries that struck the team.
The list of Al-Nasr injured includes the Colombian David Ospina, the Argentine Betty Martinez and Ayman Yahya, while the Brazilian Anderson Talisca returned to participate after recovering from an injury that kept him away for about 4 weeks.
Garcia said in a press conference after the “3-1” victory over Abha in the quarter-finals of the King’s Cup: “In sympathy for the circumstances that happened to us with the injuries of Ospina, Betty and Talisca, I think we have achieved miracles, by achieving victory in the league matches and reaching the semi-finals of the King’s Cup.”
He added, “We overcame Abha in the quarter-finals, and our next goal is to overtake Al-Wahda and qualify for the final of the tournament.”
Garcia praised the players’ performance, stressing their complete control of the match, and said: “We scored 3 goals and could have scored more.”
The French coach predicted that it would be difficult for the team to face Abha periodically in the next round: “The second confrontation with the same team is usually difficult.”
In his answer to Al-Riyadiah’s question, the extent to which the upcoming international stoppage will affect its players, he replied: “Al-Nasr is a big team, and it is natural for its players to join the national teams, and I hope that they will return in full readiness when the competitions resume. There is also a period of Ramadan that requires preparing the players well.” ».
