Al Enizi: Absence of National Players will not Affect the Derby

Abu Dhabi: 6 November 2013
Mohamed Salim Al Enizi, the supervisor of the first football team assured that the absence of the national players from next match between Al Jazira and Al Ain will not affect the specialty and the excitement of this derby, this while he was speaking to before Thursday match which will be on Thursday the fifth of November in Al Nahyan Stadium.
Al Jazira will miss on that match Ali Khaseif, Khamis Ismail and Ali Mabkhout, who all responded to the national call, and also for the same reason Al Alin will miss Mohamed Ahmed, Mohanad Al Enizi, Ismail Ahmed, Omer Abdulrahman, Mohamed Abdulrahman and Khalid Eisa.
But Al Enizi insisted that these absentees will not affect the high technical level of this match, and explained that the two teams squads have so many local and foreign talents who can provide a beautiful and decisiveness football all the time, and this will make it difficult to guess who will be the winner on Thursday before the last whistle.
Al Enizi insisted that the points of this match will be very important and critical for Al Jazira, to pass the complicated stage the team going through currently and to break the draws the late series of draws, and also to get close to the first two places in the first group table. And also for the big moral boost the team can get from winning these types of popular matches.
Going to the past, Mohamed revealed that his best matches as a player against Al Ain was the one they won back at 2005 in the league in Mohammed bin Zayed stadium, and also he didn’t score at that game, but Al Enizi said that match remained in his memory because Al Jazira played one their most beautiful matches and all the players were stars at that night.
Al Enizi described Al Ain as strong and competitive opponent, and their squad has key players who can create a continuous threat on Al Jazira goal, like Asamoah Gyan, and Diaky, who joined Al Ain last summer coming from Al Jazira, and who made a great history at Mohamed bin Zayed stadium, according to Al Enizi.
At last, El Enizi sent a message to Al Jazira fans, asking them to offer more support to their team and put their full trust on the players to help them move forward and up in all this season competitions. He stressed that Al Jazira players do not lack the motivation of the desire to fight for Al Jazira shirt, but they will always need their fans to support them from inside and outside their home, and in every match and competition in this season.
