Elco Schattorie  believes FC Goa has better build-up quality than them

Kerala Blasters will take off Fc Goa at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium Kochi on Sunday (1/12/19). Ahead of the big clash, Elco Schattorie met the press in the pre-match conference.

Elco Schattorie concern about his team’s injury list

” Today I saw the press conference with the Goa coach saying that we have a team that can play for the championship. I totally agree with him, if the team is fit. meaning that it was a sum of the all the great signings we had but a lot of them are not fit. Sandesh, Zuiverloon, Mario Arques and we have a lost of issues. If our team is fit, I’m totally not afraid of competing with any team. At this stage, we are still getting to the level of fitness we are trying for everyone.”


Elco Schattorie is going for three points 

” We are still in survival mode. I think in the last game against Bengaluru, we did very well. Everybody put up a good show. Considering our intensity and the will to win, we were a bit unlucky, but we keep going, we keep working hard. the atmosphere is good. Tomorrow we are going for the three points.”


Elco Schattorie On Mario Arques injury 

” No, these are all injuries that are long term. Hopefully, within two weeks he will be back. he is back in training. That means he is medically fit, but physically (he still some way to go). It’s always difficult when you are injured for that long. Normally, you play a game of 30 minutes and then the game for 45 minutes. So, he needs 2-3 games, but we don’t have an infrastructure. So, I will have to build it in the fastest possible way.”


Elco Schattorie believes FC Goa has good build-up quality than them 

” The game strategy I like to play a bit adapted, that means it has a lot to do with qualities. He (Sergio Lobera) has a little more quality in the back to do build-up. So, this is small extras that make a difference. I like to play football, I don’t like to play long ball strategy. Sometimes, you have to when you don’t have the quality to build-up from the back. We will try to take the game to them.”
