Schröder confirmed that Al-Nasr, thanks to the best players it has, is able to return to winning ways and climb as far as possible in the standings. Said: When I was the coach of Al-Ain, I was happy and proud to accept the job of coaching Al-Nasr, we played two matches against them and I said it was a strong team with good players. Now we have changed that. On the side of the past, we look to the future, and I believe that the future will be good.
He added: “We know we don’t have enough time to face Al-Wahda, but what’s important for me is how I handle the players and convey my coaching philosophy to them.” Regarding the transition from coaching Al-Ain to Al-Nasr in light of the two teams’ different goals and ambitions, Schröder said: As a football coach there is no difference for me, Al-Ain is a big team and Al-Nasr is a big team with many good players. I have a positive impression of Al-Nasr and it has the potential to change… Its current situation and progress is excellent and we will focus our work on it. Time to come.
Schröder explained that he had agreed with the Al-Nasr management to allow the team to play in its own way and to improve the players’ performance with or without possession of the ball. Ain on gaining experience and exposure to Emirati-Asian football in general, he added: I think I have a lot of information about Emirati football and different strong teams and others. For me, Al-Nasr is one of them. , and its current status does not reflect its true potential, and it is capable of easily competing with the top 6. We have to believe in our abilities and we can win against any other team.
Emphasizing the need to play with a fighting spirit in every match to win, Schroeder spoke to the players and asked them to always adopt a winning mentality on the field. In an ideal position, if they work on a daily basis to change the current situation, to be confident, we have to have an attitude, win every match and develop our game, and show commitment to the discipline of the team, and that is very important for me.
