Elco Schattorie wants certain structure to succeed
After a humiliation against Hydrabad FC on Saturday (2/11/19), Kerala Blasters wants to bounce back against Odisha FC at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium Kochi on (8/12/19).
The Dutchman Elco Schattorie met the press in the pre-match conference and shared his opinion about the game.
Schattorie wants a certain structure to succeed
” To be honest, I don’t stay busy with these things (issues of the pitch). But, in the end, its something that, if you look at the last two season, where the team didn’t perform well. That means when you are in a club there needs to be a certain structure in order to succeed.” Elco told the press.
Schattorie on rebuilding their team
“In this case, this season, we tried to rebuild. We tried to start from scratch. These things take time but in the end, only one word always comes to mind- stability, building stability. What happens outside the club or around the club, I don’t stay busy with my team.”
Elco Schattorie on Defensive failure
” All four goals we concede are from set-pieces. Not one team scored against us from open play. That brings me all the way to the Mumbai game, where from a throw-in, two players didn’t do their defensive game job and that is not a blame, these are things you can avoid.”
Schattorie on losing Zuiverloon
” In defence, I lost, in the last game, Zuiverloon, who is the one who should do the build-up. So, you also lose a key player there. So this moment is all about surviving, trying to create some stability by working hard. So, I will be happy if we survive this game with three points or maybe even one point and get into the break. In the end, Zuiverloon will be out for six weeks, maybe. It’s a serious injury.”
