Confident but cautious, Jarni seeks full points against ATK
GUWAHATI: Before facing ATK at home, NorthEast United coach Robert Jarni Sounded confident and cautious. In his attempt to continue the unbeaten streak in the ISL 6, the Highlanders need a much better display against the two-time champions and the Croatian player is very aware of the work.
ATK is a very dangerous team, but we know what to do in the field against them. We participate in all matches with the aim of winning. In our last game against Jamshedpur, we didn't play very well in the first half, but they were good defensively. In the second half we were very attacking and the final result was 1-1, which was very good for us. When you play outside, it's hard. We have a good defense and we have many players who are willing to make a difference, Jarni said at the pre-game press conference on Friday, the day before the high-voltage shock.
When asked about his reaction to Kai Heerings, which was available for the national team before the crucial game, Jarni said: Heerings' return is really good for us. He is a very good player in defense and his long pass helps the team. Your return is very important to us.
Speaking of his tacos, he said: I have a lot of confidence in my players. We have played against strong teams like Goa and Bengaluru, and nobody has managed to beat us. We have the potential. I think that both ATK and Jamshedpur are the two best teams in this league. They have balance in defense and attack. ATK will be a difficult challenge for us. We will give everything on the field to win the game because we need three points.
When updating Federico Gallego's recovery path, the 51-year-old man explained: Gallego has a small foot problem. He has been training with us now. He is a very good player and I hope he comes back soon. There is a possibility that he will join the team later this month, let's see.
