Coach Mancini’s dissatisfaction: “Too many opportunities were wasted in the Korean game.”
토토사이트Saudi Arabia national soccer team coach Roberto Mancini expressed dissatisfaction with the team’s performance following the loss to Korea.
Saudi Arabia, led by coach Mancini, lost 0-1 in the game against Korea held at St. James Park in Newcastle, England, at 1:30 a.m. on the 13th (Korean time). Saudi Arabia collapsed in the first half, unable to make up for the loss they gave up to Korean goaltender Cho Kyu-sung.
Saudi Arabia has lost both international matches since Mancini took office. In the match against the Costa Rica national soccer team that took place prior to the Korean match, they fell with an even larger score difference of 1-3. This is a result that is bound to be very unsatisfactory for Manager Mancini, who took the helm of Saudi Arabia while receiving the world’s highest salary.
In an interview with Saudi Arabian media <Al Arabiya>, Coach Mancini said, “I am not happy that we lost the game, but there is a lot of work to be done,” and expressed regret, “We only trained five times and wasted many opportunities against Korea.”
However, he showed his determination to create a better team in the future. Coach Mancini expressed his motivation, saying, “I am happy to take charge of Saudi Arabia and I am confident that we will do well in the future. We must improve. We will select new players through future games.”
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia plans to compete against African powerhouses such as Nigeria and Mali in two consecutive international matches in October.
